Abstract

A recent progress in the study of γ-ray jets is reviewed, with a focus on some theoretical interpretations of the VHE emission from M87, and possibly other misaligned blazars; the connection between the GeV breaks exhibited by bright LAT blazars and opacity sources in the broad line region; the consequences of the detection of GeV emission from GRBs to models of magnetic outflows; and the implications of the thermal emission observed is some GRBs to dissipation of the outflow bulk energy.
