Abstract: Magnetic A and B main-sequence stars present strange inhomogeneous distributions of metals on their surface. These stars constitute the well-known group of chemically peculiar magnetic stars (ApBp stars). The atmospheres of these stars are known to be strongly affected by atomic diffusion, and a new generation of modeling tools is appearing to take into account the complexity of physical processes in play. In this talk, I will present recent results of 3D numerical modeling of abundance distributions in these atmospheres.
