Approximate mappings are available from the set of generating parameters to those of the output networks, and
from fitted parameters for empirical networks (those of the output networks) back to the generating parameters, assuming
the fitted network belongs approximately to the family of networks generated by the model. These are not strictly
1-to-1 parameter mappings, however. The spreadsheed-based optimization method thus provides a means of finding the
best fit to the model generating parameters.
