A rigorous theoretical investigation has been made of the dust ion-acoustic (DIA) solitary and shock waves in an unmagnetized dusty plasma (containing vortexlike electrons, mobile ions, and charge fluctuating static dust) by reductive perturbation method. The effects of dust grain charge fluctuation and vortexlike (trapped) electron are found to modify the properties of the DIA solitary and shock waves significantly. The implications of these results for some space and astrophysical dusty plasma systems, especially planetary ring systems, are briefly mentioned.
