The method of local anisotropic plasma has been developed. The mathematical apparatus of the method for rapid analysis of the degree of anisotropy electron distribution function, as one of the main characteristics of anisotropic plasma has been proposed. It has been demonstrated that the degree of anisotropy of the plasma can be determined only by the form of the IU curve (the second derivative of probe current to the probe potential). The possibilities of the method in area of reconstruction of the full distribution function have been illustrated.
