We construct Weil-Petersson (WP) geodesic rays with minimal filling non-uniquely ergodic ending lamination which are recurrent to a compact subset of the moduli space of Riemann surfaces. This construction shows that an analogue of the Masur's criterion for Teichm\"uller geodesics does not hold for WP geodesics.

ITERATION OF MAPPING CLASSES AND LIMITS OF WEIL-PETERSSON GEODESICS
Let S = Sg be a closed surface of genus g with g > 2, Mod(S) be the mapping class group of S and Teich(S) be the Teichmüller space of S endowed with the Weil-Petersson metric. Fix X,Y ∈ Teich(S). In
Limit sets of Teichm\"uller geodesics with minimal non-uniquely ergodic vertical foliation
We describe a method for constructing Teichm\"uller geodesics where the vertical measured foliation $\nu$ is minimal but is not uniquely ergodic and where we have a good understanding of the behavior
Weil--Petersson geodesics on the modular surface
We consider the Weil--Petersson (WP) metric on the modular surface. We lift WP geodesics to the universal cover of the modular surface and analyse geometric properties of the lifts as paths in the
Limit sets of Teichmüller geodesics with minimal nonuniquely ergodic vertical foliation, II
Abstract Given a sequence of curves on a surface, we provide conditions which ensure that (1) the sequence is an infinite quasi-geodesic in the curve complex, (2) the limit in the Gromov boundary is
Teichmueller flow and Weil-Petersson flow
For a non-exceptional oriented surface S let Q(S) be the moduli space of area one quadratic differentials. We show that there is a Borel subset E of Q(S) which is invariant under the Teichmueller
On the geometry of the Thurston metric on Teichmüller spaces : geodesics that disobey an analogue of Masur ’ s criterion
We construct a counterexample for an analogue of Masur’s criterion in the setting of Teichmüller space with the Thurston metric. For that, we find a minimal, filling, non-uniquely ergodic lamination

We use ending laminations for Weil–Petersson geodesics to establish that bounded geometry is equivalent to bounded combinatorics for Weil–Petersson geodesic segments, rays, and lines. Further, a more

Asymptotics of Weil–Petersson Geodesics I: Ending Laminations, Recurrence, and Flows
We define an ending lamination for a Weil–Petersson geodesic ray. Despite the lack of a natural visual boundary for the Weil–Petersson metric [Bro2], these ending laminations provide an effective

We provide a combinatorial condition characterizing curves that are short along a Teichmuller geodesic. This condition is closely related to the condition pro- vided by Minsky for curves in a

This paper contains two main results. The first is the existence of an equivariant Weil-Petersson geodesic in Teichmüller space for any choice of pseudo-Anosov mapping class. As a consequence one
Almost filling laminations and the connectivity of ending lamination space
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 ending lamination space of S is

We provide the first nontrivial examples of quasi-isometric embeddings between curve complexes; these are induced by orbifold covers. This leads to new quasi-isometric embeddings between mapping
