An efficient algorithm for modeling dispersive media in finite-difference
time-domain methods is presented. It is based on the auxiliary differential
equation method for treatment of Lorentz media with an arbitrary number of
relaxations. The algorithm shows excellent accuracy of second order in time
and space and is efficient in both memory requirements and computational effort.
