The authors consider the dilute Potts model on the Sierpinski carpet. The model has a phase transition at a finite temperature and both critical and tricritical behaviour are observed for qqc (where q is the number of Potts states). They use Migdal-Kadanoff type recursion relations to obtain the value of qc and of critical and tricritical exponents and investigate their dependence on various geometrical characteristics of the fractal.
