Could you please explain how to calculate the Curvature numbers, for instance, 7.00000, 4.0000 etc? I'd like to know the way to decide Curvature value when curve radius is 400R and 600R each. Please explain to me any mathematical formula applied to calculate it.

There is a page where the documentation for the software is categorized in volumes. Download the volumes and you will learn how to calculate the curvature numbers with the help of Train Operations Model. The curvature can be calculated from the File Construction Module. You will have to select the model, position, and curvature.
