Converged 1D solution for a stationary magnetized jet (solid lines) and two corresponding 2D solutions found via the relaxation method, one with the \(\pmb{1{,}600\times3{,}200}\) -resolution (dashed lines) and one with the \(\pmb{800\times1{,}600}\) -resolution (dotted lines). The lines are 10 rest-frame density contours consecutively spaced by the factor of one half from the starting value of \(\rho_{\max}=1\). The solution involves a reconfinement shock which reaches the jet axis at \(z\approx400\).
