The possibility of a numerical description of the behavior of high-energy protons in the Earth’s magnetosphere in the regions of dynamic instability of their motion in phase space is studied. The results of a comparison of various methods of numerical calculation of the motion of protons in these regions are presented, and an approach is proposed for averaged description of their behavior.
