Description

In this talk I will review models in which a dark energy scalar field mediates a fifth force between dark matter particles. In such theories, the accelerated expansion of the universe is due to the energy density of the scalar field while its field value determines the dark matter particle mass. I will discuss motivations for such models and describe their cosmological consequences.
