  • We discuss a large deviation property of a periodic random walk on a crystal lattice in view of geometry, and relate it to a rational convex polyhedron in the first homology group of a finite graph, which, as we shall observe, has remarkable combinatorial features, and shows up also in the Gromov-Hausdorff limit of a crystal lattice.
