Abstract

We investigate the possibility that dark energy does not couple to gravitation in the same way as ordinary matter, yielding a violation of the weak and strong equivalence principles on cosmological scales. We build a transient mechanism in which gravitation is pushed away from general relativity by a Born-Infeld gauge interaction acting as an Abnormally Weighting (dark) Energy (AWE). This mechanism accounts for the Hubble diagram of far-away super novae by cosmic acceleration and time variation of the gravitational constant while accounting naturally for the present tests on general relativity
