Abstract: Let $ (X, S)$ and $ (Y, T)$ be topological dynamical systems and $ \pi : X \rightarrow Y$ a factor map. A function $ F \in C (X)$ is a compensation function for $ \pi$ if $ P (F + \phi \circ \pi ) = P (\phi)$ for all $ \phi \in C(Y)$. For a factor code between subshifts of finite type, we analyze the associated relative entropy function and give a necessary condition for the existence of saturated compensation functions. Necessary and sufficient conditions for a map to be a saturated compensation function will be provided.
