While stationary models are very successful in explaining some of the properties of relativistic jets, these objects are unlikely to be launched in a laminar fashion. Thus, it is likely that shocks form within them. These internal shocks have been proposed as one of the mechanisms that could be responsible for re-acceleration of particles as they travel along the jet (as an alternative to, or alongside magnetic reconnection). While planar shocks may be inefficient at accelerating particles, itdoi:10.5281/zenodo.5525194 fatcat:ctp54y2btjemnpw6rhxwvfiduq
