Abstract Plasma electron heating is studied when the primary channel for the dissipation of the pump energy is plasma wave collapse. At a pump energy higher than the initial plasma energy, the self-similar solutions derived in earlier papers remain valid. The situation is quite different when the accelerated electrons reach relativistic velocities. The number of relativistic particles increases over time. The wave energy is nonvanishing throughout the phase-velocity space, and in velocity space there is a flux of particles from the thermal velocity ..nu../sub T/e toward the speed of light.
