Dark photon dark matter from a network of cosmic strings

Although the evidence for a dark form of matter in the Universe is overwhelming, we still know next to nothing about its properties and interactions. In this talk I will suppose that dark matter is a condensate of ultra-light, spin-1 particles, known as dark photons, and I will discuss how dark matter is produced from a network of near-global, Abelian-Higgs cosmic strings.
