This presentation delves into the fascinating relationship between integrable systems theory and random matrix theory. In particular, I show a method to describe the eigenvalue density of the Ablowitz-Ladik lattice with random initial data sampled from a Generalized Gibbs ensemble. This characterization is achieved by employing a large deviation principle (LDP). Additionally, we establish a connection between this LDP and the one of the Circular beta ensemble in the high temperature regime. As a result, we can explicitly compute the eigenvalue density of the Ablowitz-Ladik lattice using the density of the random matrix ensemble. This talk is mainly based on
