We have numerically calculated chaotic waves of the focusing nonlinear Schr®rodinger equation (NLSE),
starting with a plane wave modulated by relatively weak random waves. We show that the peaks with
highest amplitude of the resulting wave composition (rogue waves) can be described in terms of exact
