Construct is a multi-agent simulation tool that is commonly used
to investigate dynamic behavior in complex socio-cultural systems.
This technical report discusses the networks available in
Construct, and how each of these networks may affect simulation behavior.
It also describes the parameters necessary to define networks in the
simulation, including networks deriving from an external source. This
document is intended primarily as a reference guide, and assumes at least
some familiarity with the Construct modeling environment.
