Abstract. We present a numerical model for electron acceler-
ation and radiation inside the body of an extragalactic jet. We
model the jet environment as a turbulent medium generating
non-linear structures (eddies and/or shocks) through a cascad-
ing process. These structures act like in-situ accelerators for the
electrons that are initially injected from the central engine. Two
