NetEvo is a computing framework designed to allow researchers to investigate evolutionary aspects of dynamical complex networks. By providing tools to easily integrate network topology, system dynamics and evolutionary processes in a coherent way, it is hoped a greater understanding can be gained of key attributes and features displayed by complex systems. This document provides developer documentation of all strutures and functions necessary to use NetEvo.
