Abstract Properties of proton-rich nuclei at the {ital sd}-{ital fp}-shell boundary with 37{le}{ital A}{le}48 are investigated within the framework of the nuclear shell model. Predicted binding energies, one- and two-proton separation energies, and {beta}-end-point energies are presented. Half-lives associated with one- and two-proton emissions are compared with {beta} decay, and it is determined that the best candidates for the observation of correlated two-proton emission are {sup 38}Ti and {sup 45}Fe. The predicted branching ratios for {beta} decay as a function of excitation energy in the daughter nucleus are shown. Where available, {beta}-decay half-lives are compared with experiment and are found to be in overall good agreement. {copyright} {ital 1996 The American Physical Society.}
