Abstract: This is a brief review of the recent developments in the theory of magneticacceleration of relativistic jets. We attempt to explain the key results ofthis complex theory using basic physical arguments and simple calculations. Themain focus is on the standard model, which describes steady-state axisymmetricideal MHD flows. We argue that this model is over-restrictive and discussvarious alternatives.
