A simple method of approximating frequency characteristics of composites in a form convenient for time-domain numerical modeling is proposed. The frequency characteristics can be obtained from experiment or calculations based on the Maxwell Garnett mixing formalism. The resultant frequency characteristic might be of a complex shape corresponding to a combination of a number of absorption peaks. The approximation is made by a series of Debye-like terms using a genetic algorithm (GA). This leads to the necessity of taking a number of terms in the approximating series. Every term corresponds to its pole, i.e., the frequency where the maximum loss occurs. Some numerical examples are represented.
