[en] The shock acceleration mechanism is invoked to explain non-thermal cosmic rays in Supernova Remnants, Active
Galactic Nuclei and Gamma Ray Bursts jets. Especially, the importance of relativistic shock
acceleration in extragalactic sources is a recurring theme raising a significant interest in the
research community. We will briefly discuss the shock acceleration
mechanism and we will address the properties of non-relativistic and relativistic shocks,
particularly focusing on relativistic numerical Monte Carlo studies.
