Nature of problem:
Complex numerical simulation of dynamics of astrophysical objects plays an important role due to significant growth of observational astronomic data. The new astrophysical models and codes need to be developed for detailed simulation of different physical effects in astrophysics with the use of modern supercomputers with hybrid architecture.

Solution method:
AstroPhi code consisting of particle-in-cell and Godunov methods combination adapted for hybrid supercomputer architecture.
