The phase transitions on non-crystalline structures can be connected to general geometrical features of networks and spontaneous symmetry breaking. Sierpinski Gasket is a typical and interesting fractal. We use recursive relation to give a formula for the partition functions of Ising model on such fractal. Zeros’ distribution is equivalent to the knowledge of the partition function itself and we can obtain all thermodynamic quantities from it.
