We calculate zeros of the q-state Potts model partition function on mth-iterate Sierpinski graphs, Sm, in the variable q and in a temperature-like variable, y. We infer some conjectured asymptotic properties of the loci of zeros in the limit m→infin and relate these to thermodynamic properties of the q-state Potts ferromagnet and antiferromagnet on the Sierpinski gasket fractal, Sinfin.
