Linearized kinetic equations are derived to study the effects of the transverse electron beam dimensions on the beam-plasma instability. By choosing the appropriate parameters of the plasma and electron beam it is possible to achieve either collapse of the instability or the maximum possible relaxation of the beam. (AIP)
