Using the recently formulated iterative extended boundary condition method (IEBCM) it is shown that the absorption mechanisms in a lossy dielectric object are enhanced by the presence of a nonvanishing magnetic susceptibility. In addition, there is a corresponding reduction in the backscattering cross section. The conditional convergence of the IEBCM algorithm is also proved.
