Remarks on non-diagonality conditions for Sierpinski carpets

Full-text: Open access


We prove the equivalence of three different formulations of non-diagonality for Sierpinski carpets given by Barlow, Bass, Kumagai and Teplyaev [5], by Hino [10] and by Kigami [12]. We also derive some geometric property of Sierpinski carpets from the non-diagonality. As an application, we give a simpler treatment of a criterion stated in Kigami [12, Section 3.4] for the volume doubling property of self-similar measures on Sierpinski carpets.
