Code(s) de Classification MSC:

Résumé: For the model of directed polymers in a gaussian random environment introduced by Imbrie and Spencer, we establish: \begin{itemize} \item a scaling inequality between the volume exponent and the fluctuation exponent of the free energy; \item a Large Deviations Principle for the end position of the polymer under the Gibbs measure; \item a relationship between the volume exponent and the rate function of the Large Deviations Principle.
