The problem of Langmuir wave collapse in 2D and 3D plasma is considered. A new approach for computer simulation of this phenomenon is proposed, which includes two different theoretical models: averaged dynamical equations and Vlasov's set of equations. It allows to take into account all essential effects during the whole process of collapse and, hence, to get a reliable picture of the collapse in detail and to save markedly computer resources. Peculiarities of the numeric methods are also discussed.
