abstract = {Our goal is to study Pascal-Sierpinski gaskets, which are certain fractal sets defined in terms of divisibility of entries in Pascal's triangle. The principal tool is a carry rule for the addition of the base-q representation of coordinates of points in the unit square. In the case that q = p is prime, we connect the carry rule to the power of p appearing in the prime factorization of binomial coefficients. We use the carry rule to define a family of fractal subsets Bqr of the unit square, and we show that when q = p is prime, Bqr coincides with the Pascal-Sierpinski gasket corresponding to N = pr. We go on to describe Bqr as the limit of an iterated function system of partial similarities , and we determine its Hausdorff dimension. We consider also the corresponding fractal sets in higher-dimensional Euclidean space.},
