Deformation spaces of Kleinian surface groups are not locally connected

Geometry & Topology 16 (2012) 1247–1320
Abstract

For any closed surface S of genus g 2, we show that the deformation space AH(S × I) of marked hyperbolic 3–manifolds homotopy equivalent to S is not locally connected. This proves a conjecture of Bromberg who recently proved that the space of Kleinian punctured torus groups is not locally connected. Playing an essential role in our proof is a new version of the filling theorem that is based on the theory of cone-manifold deformations developed by Hodgson, Kerckhoff and Bromberg.
