We are interested in the large time behavior of simple random walk in \(\mathbb{Z}^d\), especially the number of sites visited by it. The asymptotic behavior of the number could be analyzed via the behavior of its moment generating function. A rate function will provided as an application of Large Deviation Theory. Some inequalities and typical results for LDP will be introduced. No special background is assumed.
