### Abstract

The aim of this note is to study the asymptotic behavior of a gaussian random field, under the condition that the variables are positive and the total volume under the variables converges to some fixed number v > 0. In the context of Statistical Mechanics, this corresponds to the problem of constructing a droplet on a hard wall with a given volume. We show that, properly rescaled, the profile of a gaussian configuration converges to a smooth hypersurface, which solves a quadratic variational problem. Our main tool is a scaling dependent large deviation principle for random hypersurfaces.
