Recent radio and optical large scale jets' observations suggest a two-component jet morphology, consisting of a fast central spine surrounded with a boundary layer with a velocity shear. We study radiation of electrons accelerated at such boundary layers as an option for standard approaches involving internal shocks in jets. The acceleration process in the… CONTINUE READING
