### Abstract

The catalysis of chiral symmetry breaking in the massless weakly coupled QED in a magnetic field at finite temperature is studied. The temperature of the symmetry restoration is estimated analytically as T_{c} ≈ m_{dyn}, where m_{dyn} is the dynamical mass of a fermion at zero temperature.
