A collapse phenomenon occurs according to the dynamical equations of a hot plasma averaged over the period of the electron plasma waves. The evolution of the collapse is analyzed, and its self-similar nature is demonstrated. The theoretical results have been checked and confirmed in numerical experiments for two cavity configurations: planar and axisymmetric.
