One can imagine a number of mechanisms that could be the cause of brighter/fainter segments of jets. In a sense, jets might be easier to understand if they were featureless. However we observe a wide variety of structures which we call "knots". By considering the ramifications of the various scenarios for the creation of knots, we determine which ones or which classes are favored by the currently available multiwavelength data.
