Starting from the assumption of compression of the plasma column to the size of the Larmor radius, which is described by an ion in the self-magnetic field of the discharge, and the Bennet relations, expressions are obtained for the temperature and linear density of the plasma. It is shown that the plasma heating results from the excitation of ion-acoustic turbulence.
