Abstract: A straightforward formalism to evaluate the impact of Type Ia Supernovae on large scale astrophysical issues is presented, together with analytical formulations for the Type Ia supernova rate following an instantaneous burst of Star Formation, for the variety of Type Ia aupernova progenitors. Some applications of the parametrized formalism are illustrated. The observations seem to favour the Double Degenerate systems as Type Ia supernovae precursors.
