How can rsync detect renamed files ? If it is possible.

I read that rsync can find files that we renamed.

So, I would like to know how it can do that, if it's really possible ?

I think there is a link with the file-list but I don't understand how it can detect that a file named 'test' is the same than the file renamed 'test_bis' for example.

I didn't test it so I don't know if my question is correct.
