This note studies the large deviations for the dynamics \(\sum^{n- 1}_{i=0}g\circ T^ i\), where \(T\) is a measure preserving transformation. It is proved that for Gibbs measure, the information function can be described by the pressure function. Moreover, a lower bound for the increments of the pressure functions is also presented.
