In this paper, we prove a conditional principle of Gibbs type for random weighted measures of the form L n = 1 n i = 1 n Z i δ x i n , ((Zi)i being a sequence of i.i.d. real random variables. Our work extends the preceding results of Gamboa and Gassiat (1997), in allowing to consider thin constraints. Transportation-like ideas are used in the proof.
