This paper considers a spherical shock, in a conducting gas, produced on account of explosion into an inhomogeneous self gravitating system. Similarity principles have been used to reduce the equations governing the flow to ordinary differential equations under the assumption that the density varies as an inverse-power of distance from the explosion centre.
