We investigate the sandpile model on the two-dimensional Sierpinski gasket fractal. We find that the model displays interesting critical behavior, and we analyze the distribution functions of avalanche sizes, lifetimes, and topplings and calculate the associated critical exponents t51.5160.04, a51.6360.04, and m51.3660.04. The avalanche size distribution shows power-law behavior modulated by logarithmic oscillations which can be related to the discrete scale invariance of the underlying lattice…

It is shown that the scaling law D(2-τ)=d(w) generalizes the corresponding scaling law on regular lattices, in particular hypercubes, where d(w)=2.0 and the critical exponent D forms a plane in three-dimensional parameter space.

It is argued that the interplay between the spatial discrete scale invariance of the fractal substrate and the dynamics of the physical process occurring in those media is a quite general phenomenon that leads to the observation of logarithmic-periodic modulations of physical observables.

This work gives a simple explanation of the origin of this modulation for diffusion on a substrate with two properties: self-similarity and finite ramification order, which can be understood on the basis of a hierarchical set of diffusion constants.
