Depth of pleated surfaces in toroidal cusps of hyperbolic $3$–manifolds

Algebraic & Geometric Topology 9 (2009) 2175–2189
Abstract

Let F be a closed essential surface in a hyperbolic 3–manifold M with a toroidal cusp N. The depth of F in N is the maximal distance from points of F in N to the boundary of N. It will be shown that if F is an essential pleated surface which is not coannular to the boundary torus of N then the depth of F in N is bounded above by a constant depending only on the genus of F. The result is used to show that an immersed closed essential surface in M which is not coannular to the torus boundary components of M will remain essential in the Dehn filling manifold M(γ) after excluding Cg curves from each torus boundary component of M, where Cg is a constant depending only on the genus g of the surface.
