We examine the possible role of electron-capture on the thermally populated first 2+ excited state of 44Ti in hot astrophysical environments pertaining to post explosive nucleosynthesis supernova debris. We find in a simple schematic model that the astrophysical weak interaction rate for electron-capture decay of 44Ti can depend considerably on temperature and hence on time. We propose a time varying decay rate for the evolving supernova debris and demonstrate its consequence for the 44Ti mass yield of the supernova Cas A, observed through the measured 1.157 MeV γ-ray flux from the electron-capture decay of 44Ti.

The one- plus two-body isospin non-conserving nuclear interactions, namely the isovector and isotensor ones, are included in the prediction of the energies of the ground state and the low-lying states of the $fp$ shell nuclei using spectral distribution theory. This in turn is used to calculate the linear term in the isobaric mass-multiplet equation and the predictions are then compared with experimental values after the addition of the Coulomb contribution. The agreement is found to be good as observed for $sd$ shell nuclei earlier. One also sees that in this method the contribution to the linear term comes almost completely from the one-body isovector Hamiltonian, resulting in a huge simpliﬁcation of the problem.
