The recent discoveries in the theory of diffusive shock acceleration (DSA) that stem from first-principle kinetic plasma simulations are discussed.
When ion acceleration is efficient, the back-reaction of non-thermal particles and self-generated magnetic fields becomes prominent and leads to both enhanced shock compression and particle spectra significantly softer than the standard test-particle DSA theory.
These results are discussed in the context of the non-thermal phenomenology of astrophysical shocks, with a special focus on the supernova remnant SN1006.
