Almost filling laminations and the connectivity of ending lamination space

David Gabai

Geometry & Topology 13 (2009) 1017–1041
Abstract

We show that if S is a finite type orientable surface of negative Euler characteristic which is not the 3–holed sphere, 4–holed sphere or 1–holed torus, then the space of ending laminations of S is path connected, locally path connected and cyclic.
