Chamseddine, Ali H. and Mukhanov, Viatcheslav (2016): Inhomogeneous dark energy. In: Journal of Cosmology and Astroparticle Physics, No. 2, 40

We modify Einstein General Relativity by adding non-dynamical scalar fields to account simultaneously for both dark matter and dark energy. The dark energy in this case can be distributed in-homogeneously even within horizon scales. Its inhomogeneities can contribute to the late time integrated Sachs-Wolfe effect, possibly removing some of the low multipole anomalies in the temperature fluctuations of the CMB spectrum. The presence of the inhomogeneous dark matter also influences structure formation in the universe.
