Abstract

We consider complex one-dimensional Bers-Maskit slices through the deformation space of quasifuchsian groups which uniformize a pair of punctured tori. In these slices, the pleating locus on one of the components of the convex hull boundary of the quotient three-manifold has constant rational pleating and constant hyperbolic length. We show that the boundary of such a slice is a Jordan curve which is cusped at a countable dense set of points. We will also show that the slices are not vertically convex, proving the phenomenon observed numerically by Epstein, Marden and Markovic.
