"The physics of the strong equivalence principle violation"

abs: So far, no new degree of freedom has been observed in Nature. Assuming that no new degrees of freedom exist up to very high energies, I will discuss that interesting new physics, matching with (cosmological) observations, can nevertheless emerge if the strong equivalence principle is abandoned at very large scales.
