“Energy from matter components can be ceded to the gravitational field, and this ‘loss of energy’ will behave as a cosmological constant—it will not be diluted by later expansion of the universe,” Josset said. “Therefore a tiny loss or creation of energy in the remote past may have significant consequences today on large scale.”
“Our proposal is very general and any violation of energy conservation is expected to contribute to an effective cosmological constant,” Josset said. “This could allow to set new constraints on phenomenological models beyond standard quantum mechanics.
