If you have a question about this talk, please contact Alexander Blustin.

I will present new and archival multi-frequency radio and X-ray data for Centaurus A obtained over more than a decade at the VLA and with Chandra. I have used radio and X-ray flux variability, polarization variability, spectral indices and proper motions of the jet knots in Cen A to rule out impulsive particle acceleration in this jet and I will discuss the most likely knot formation processes and the related particle acceleration mechanisms.
