Abstract

We examine a class of fractal graphs which arise from a subclass of finitely ramified fractals. The two-sided heat kernel estimates for these graphs are obtained in terms of an effective resistance metric and they are best possible up to constants. If the graph has symmetry, these estimates can be expressed as the usual Gaussian or sub-Gaussian estimates. However, without symmetry, the off-diagonal terms show different decay in different directions. We also discuss the stability of the sub-Gaussian heat kernel estimates under rough isometries.
