Imploding and exploding shocks are studied in nonplanar geometries for negative ion degenerate plasma. Deformed Korteweg de Vries Burgers (DKdVB) equation is derived by using reductive perturbation method. Two level finite difference scheme is used for numerical analysis of DKdVB. It is observed that compressive and rarefactive shocks are observed depending on the value of quantum parameter. The effects of temperature, kinematic viscosity, mass ratio of negative to positive ions and quantum parameter on diverging and converging shocks are presented.
