We present a general approach, based on the discrete dipole approximation (DDA), for the computation of the exchange of momentum between light and a magnetodielectric, three-dimensional object with arbitrary geometry and linear permittivity and permeability tensors in time domain. The method can handle objects with an arbitrary shape, including objects with dispersive dielectric and/or magnetic material responses. © 2011 Optical Society of America.
