Abstract

New multi-epoch Chandra observations, combined with multi-epoch, high-dynamic range VLA data, have allowed us to relate the radio and X-ray structure of the jet in Cen A to the jet dynamics. We present evidence that a significant fraction of the structure in the Cen A X-ray jet is due to particle acceleration at the interaction between the jet flow and internal galactic material.
