A Lorentzian model as the general case of a frequency-dependent behavior of a dispersive dielectric material is considered in this paper. Recursive convolution algorithms for the finite-difference time-domain (FDTD) technique for two cases of a Lorentzian medium, narrowband and wideband, depending on the ratio of a resonance line half-width at -3 dB and the resonance frequency of the material, are detailed. It is shown that a wideband Lorentzian model of a dielectric FR-4 used in printed circuit boards is more flexible and gives good agreement with experimental curves, and may be preferable as compared to a Debye model.
