On the topology of ending lamination space

David Gabai

Geometry & Topology 18 (2014) 2683–2745
Abstract

We show that if S is a finite-type orientable surface of genus g and with p punctures, where 3g + p 5, then (S) is (n 1)–connected and (n 1)–locally connected, where dim(P(S)) = 2n + 1 = 6g + 2p 7. Furthermore, if g = 0, then (S) is homeomorphic to the (p 4)–dimensional Nöbeling space. Finally if n0, then P(S) is connected.
