Large deviation function for a Gamma distribution
I have a problem with the final part of this exercise. I have computed the large deviation function of that distribution correctly, I've also found the form of the Y function but I'm not able to justify that relation. Could anyone explain it to me please?
Compute the large deviation function for a non negative random variable with distribution p(x) = x^(nā1)*exp(-x)/Ī(n). Check that the solution has the scaling form I(x) = nY(x/n). Why is this so?
