Abstract: Criminal behaviour often involves a combination of physical, mental, social and environmental (multi-)agent aspects, such as neurological deviations, hormones, arousal, (non)empathy, targets and social control. To study the dynamics of these aspects, this paper contributes a dynamical agent-based approach for analysis and simulation of criminal behaviour. It involves dynamically generated desires and beliefs in opportunities within the social environment, both based on literature on criminal behaviour. The approach is illustrated for the case of an Intermittent Explosive Disorder.
