At the present state of the art, the existence of an almost sure constant speed has been proven for dynamic REs with “good” mixing properties in space and time (see [3, 5, 13, 20]) except in which instead uses a strong elliptic condition.

Let us first recall the concept of large and moderate deviations. A speed is a sequence (νn ) of positive numbers going to infinity. A good rate function on Rm is a lower semicontinuous function I : Rm → [0, ∞] such that, for each α < ∞, the level set {x ∈ Rm , I (x) ≤ α} is a compact set.
