In science:

One way to interpret Achlioptas’ original question is whether, under a specific model of semi-random graphs, the phase transition occurs when the average degree of a vertex hits 1 as it does in the Erd˝os-R´enyi random graph.
Random k-SAT and the Power of Two Choices
The average response (= distribution of number of hits) in clean regions of the stack, i.e. away from borders and fishing lines, was measured and is being used to tune the Monte Carlo simulation of the RPC response.
Calorimetry for Lepton Collider Experiments - CALICE results and activities
At a given momentum the average number of hits is significantly smaller with tungsten than with steel absorber plates, of the order of 30% less. • The response to pions (and electrons) deviates from a straight line already at low momenta (i.e. below 10 GeV/c).

We prove both quenched and averaged large deviation principles for the position and the hitting times of the RWRE.
Large deviations for random walks in a random environment on a strip
To prove the averaged large deviation principle for the hitting times we will need a more restrictive assumption on the distribution η on environments.
Large deviations for random walks in a random environment on a strip
In Sections 4 and 5 we prove the quenched and averaged large deviation principles for hitting times, and then in Section 6 we show how to transfer these to obtain quenched and averaged large deviation principles for Xn/n.
Large deviations for random walks in a random environment on a strip
The main goal of this section is to prove the averaged large deviation principle for the hitting times as stated in Theorem 1.3.

Properties of the averaged rate function for hitting times.
Large deviations for random walks in a random environment on a strip
Recall that the averaged rate function for hitting times is defined by the variational formula in (10) involving the specific relative entropy function h(·|η).

This completes the averaged large deviations lower bound for hitting times.
Large deviations for random walks in a random environment on a strip
Having proved the quenched and averaged large deviation principles for the hitting times, we now use these to prove quenched and averaged large deviation principles for the speed Xn/n of the random walk.
Large deviations for random walks in a random environment on a strip
