Abstract Plasma response to the ultrarelativistic beam of an arbitrary density is considered assuming a slow beam current growth. The problem is reduced to a single second order differential equation, which is numerically solved for Gaussian beams of various radii and densities. Graphs obtained clarify the structure of the ion channel, give insight into charge and current neutralizations of the dense beam, and permit the analysis of the focusing force acting on the beam in a plasma. {copyright} {ital 1996 American Institute of Physics.}
