Using Lie group of transformations, here we consider the problem of finding similarity solutions to the system of partial differential equations (PDEs) governing one-dimensional unsteady motion of an ideal gas in the presence of radiative cooling and idealized azimuthal magnetic field. The similarity solutions are investigated behind a cylindrical shock wave which is produced as a result of a sudden explosion or driven out by an expanding piston. The shock is assumed to be strong and propagates into a medium which is at rest, with nonuniform density. The total energy of the wave is assumed to be time dependent obeying a power law. Indeed, with the use of the similarity solution, the problem is transformed into a system of ordinary differential equations (ODEs), which in general is nonlinear; in some cases, it is possible to solve these ODEs to determine some special exact solutions.
