Abstract : A self-similar theoretical model of propagation of strong plane shock waves in an inhomogeneous, magneto-radiative, self-gravitating atmosphere in the direction of decreasing density is considered. The results discussed depend upon the variations of the flow variables which are displayed graphically and the influences of the gravitation and radiation flux have been studied.
