Résumé : We continue the study of a particle (atom, molecule) undergoing an unbiased random walk on the Sierpinski gasket, and obtain for the gasket and tower the eigenvalue spectrum of the associated stochastic master equation. Analytic expressions for recurrence relations among the eigenvalues are derived. The recurrence relations obtained are compared with those determined for two Euclidean lattices, the closed chain with an absorbing site and a finite chain with an absorbing site at one end. We check and confirm the internal consistency between the smallest eigenvalue and the mean walklength in each of the cases studied. Attention is drawn to the relevance of the results obtained to a problem of electron transfer in proteins. © 2010 The American Physical Society.
