Self‐similar solutions for the flow behind a self‐gravitating, Magneto‐gas dynamic, spherical shock wave are obtained. The ambient medium is a non uniformly rotating gas of infinite electrical conductivity with uniform azimuthal magnetic field and radiation heat flux. The medium is a perfect grey gas in local thermodynamic equilibrium. The total energy of the expanding shock wave is supposed to remain constant. The effects of variations of the shock Mach number, the Alfven Mach number, the radiation parameter and the gravitation on flow field behind the shock wave are shown graphically and discussed.
