## Train-tracks for surface homeomorphisms.(English)Zbl 0837.57010

The authors give a constructive proof of Thurston’s theorem [see e.g., A. Fathi, F. Laudenbach, V. Poenaru, et.al., “Travaux de Thurston sur les surfaces”, Astérisque, 66-67 (1979; Zbl 0446.57005-23)] on the classification of isotopy classes of homeomorphisms of closed punctured surfaces with negative Euler characteristic.
