English The interplay of fractal geometry, analysis and stochastics on the oneparameter sequence of self-similar generalized Sierpinski gaskets is studied. An improved algorithm for the exact computation of mean crossing times through the generating graphs SG(m) of generalized Sierpinski gaskets sg(m) for m up to 37 is presented and numerical approximations up to m = 100 are shown. Moreover, an alternative method for the approximation of the mean crossing times, the walk and the spectral dimensions of these fractal sets based on quasi-random so-called rotor walks is developed, confidence bounds are calculated and numerical results are shown and compared with exact values (if available) and with known asymptotic formulas.
