The recently introduced quantum particle swarm optimization (QPSO) algorithm is employed to find infinitesimal dipole models (IDM) for antennas with known near-fields (measured or computed). The IDM can predict accurately both the near-fields and the far-fields of the antenna. A theory is developed to explain the mechanism behind the IDM using the multipole expansion method. The IDM obtained from single frequency solutions is extrapolated over a frequency range around the design frequency. The method is demonstrated by analyzing conducting- and dielectric-type antennas. A calibration procedure is proposed to systematically implement infinitesimal dipoles within existing method of moment (MoM) codes. The interaction of the IDM with passive and active objects is studied through several examples. The IDM proved to predict the interaction efficiently. A closed-form expression for the mutual admittance between similar or dissimilar antennas, with arbitrary orientations and/or locations, is derived using the reaction theorem
