Abstract: We consider a system of two equations derived from isentropic gas dynamics with no classical Riemann solutions. We show existence of unbounded self-similar solutions (singular shocks) of the Dafermos regularization of the system. Our approach is based on the blowing-up approach of geometric singular perturbation theory.
