Unpublished manuscript:

Conditional large deviation principle for finite state Gibbs random fields. (This paper was written in 2002. The proof was “à la Shannon-McMillan-Breiman”. It was later pointed out by a referee that some of the results had been obtained before, although in a different form.)
