Acceleration by relativistic shock fronts

Abstract:
Both a semi-analytic treatment and Monte-Carlo simulations of the problem of test particle acceleration at an ultra-relativistic shock predict a power-law spectrum of index d ln f/d ln p approximate to -4.2, where f is the phase space density and p the particle momentum. A brief review is given of this result, together with a discussion of its robustness and relevance to observations.
