In science:

Since P is non-nestling, for the remainder of this section, we fix a direction ℓ ∈ S d−1 such that cℓ ∈ Zd , for some c > 0, and P is non-nestling in direction ℓ.
Limiting distributions and large deviations for random walks in random environments
Remark: The proof of Proposition 6.3.4 does not use that P is non-nestling.
Limiting distributions and large deviations for random walks in random environments
For d > 1, we only know that ¯J (v) = H (v) in a neighborhood of vP when P is non-nestling.
Limiting distributions and large deviations for random walks in random environments
If the environment is nestling, then ¯J (0) = 0 and the statement is trivial.

Definition 3 The RWRE is said to be plain nestling if zero is contained in the interior of the convex hull of the support of the random variable ∆ω (0).
Slowdown estimates for ballistic random walk in random environment
For the ballistic case with limiting velocity , Varadhan showed that if the RWRE is non-nestling, then F −1 (0) = { }, while if the RWRE is plain nestling or marginally nestling, then F −1 (0) = A, with A being the convex hull of 0 and .
Slowdown estimates for ballistic random walk in random environment
The purpose of this paper is to provide an estimate for the probability in (1.2) in the plain nestling case under some additional assumptions which we specify below.
Slowdown estimates for ballistic random walk in random environment
Varadhan’s description of the zero-set of the annealed rate function in Theorem [Var03] implies that under Assumptions 1, 2 and 3, if P is non-nestling, then vP is the unique zero of the annealed rate function, and if P is nestling then [0, vP ] is the zero set of the annealed rate function.

Section 3 provides an easy large deviation lower bound with rate function ¯J (v) for both nestling and non-nestling RWRE.

Then, in Section 4 we derive matching large deviation upper bounds in a neighborhood of vP when P is non-nestling and in a neighborhood of (0, vP ] when P is nestling.
On the annealed large deviation rate function for a multi-dimensional random walk in random environment
Since either P is non-nestling or d ≥ 2 and condition T was assumed, it is known that Eτ1 < ∞ and thus vP · ℓ > 0.
On the annealed large deviation rate function for a multi-dimensional random walk in random environment
We now prove some more detailed properties of the function ¯J (v) in the non-nestling and nestling cases, respectively.

As in the non-nestling case, for any η ∈ C+ ∪ C 0 , let λ(η) be the unique solution to Λ(η , λ(η)) = 0. (Lemma 2.5 implies that Λ(η , λ(η)) = 0 does not have a solution when η ∈ C \(C+ ∪ C 0 ) ).
