N2 - We investigate stochastic properties of the backward continued fraction expansion of irrational numbers in (0,1). For the mean process associated with a real-valued observable which depends only on the first digit of the expansion, we establish the large deviation principle. For any such observable which is non-negative, we completely determine the set of minimizers of the rate function in terms of a growth rate of the observable. Our method of proof employs the thermodynamic formalism for topological Markov shifts, and a multifractal analysis of pointwise Lyapunov exponents for the Rényi map generating the backward continued fraction expansion.
