This is the input file format for the rk4tau program, an experimental version of Gillespie's tau-leaping concept. This is an approximate stochastic simulator that does not simulate every single reaction event. Instead, it moves from timepoint to timepoint, estimating the number of each kind of reaction that occurs between timepoints. The timepoints and the approximations of event counts come, basically, from 'forward' ODE technology, in this case 6th-order Runge-Kutta.
