@article{Perrotta2002OnTD, title={On the dark energy clustering properties}, author={F. Perrotta and Carlo Baccigalupi}, journal={Physical Review D}, year={2002}, volume={65}, pages={123505} }

We highlight a viable mechanism leading to the formation of dark energy structures on sub-horizon cosmological scales, starting from linear perturbations in scalar-tensor cosmologies. We show that the coupling of the dark energy scalar field, or Quintessence, to the Ricci scalar induces a "dragging" of its density perturbations through the general relativistic gravitational potentials. We discuss, in particular, how this process forces dark energy to behave as a pressureless component if the…
