Abstract: We establish the uniqueness and stability of the similarity solution of the Riemann problem for a $ 2 \times 2$ system of conservation laws of mixed type, with initial data separated by the elliptic region, which satisfies the viscosity-capillarity travelling wave admissibility criterion.
