The coincidence problem of late cosmic acceleration is a serious riddle in connection with our understanding of the evolution of the Universe. In this paper we show that an interaction between the dark energy component (either phantom or quintessence) and dark matter can alleviate it. In this scenario the baryon component is independently conserved. This generalizes a previous study in which neither baryons nor phantom energy were considered. © 2006 The American Physical Society.
