A theoretical investigation of the basic characteristics of cylindrical and spherical dust-ion-acoustic (DIA) solitary waves (SWs) is made in a dusty non-thermal plasma, whose constituents are non-thermal electrons, inertial ions, and arbitrarily charged stationary dust. The reductive perturbation method is used to derive the modified Gardner equation. The latter is numerically analyzed for both positively and negatively charged dust. The basic features of cylindrical and spherical DIA SWs, which are found to exist in such a dusty non-thermal plasma, are identified. The implications of our results to both space and laboratory plasma situations are also discussed briefly.
