Gillespie's Stochastic Simulation Algorithm for Impatient People

A fast, scalable, and versatile framework for simulating large systems with Gillespie's Stochastic Simulation Algorithm ('SSA'). This package is the spiritual successor to the 'GillespieSSA' package originally written by Mario Pineda-Krch. Benefits of this package include major speed improvements (>100x), easier to understand documentation, and many unit tests that try to ensure the package works as intended.
