Abstract
The configuration-dependent cranked Nilsson-Strutinsky approach has been employed to study the properties and band structures at high spin in the Z=N odd-odd nuclei $\chem{^{46}V}$ and $\chem{^{50}Mn}$. The observed bands are explained and terminating states are confirmed by the calculations. The calculated and observed bands are in good agreement without normalization, especially for terminating states. Possible bands with rotation around the intermediate axis and the effect of $\gamma $-deformation on the total energy of several interesting configurations are discussed.
