-This is an efficient, C++ implementation of several Bayesian optimization
-algorithms. See References for some of the papers.
-It combines the use of a stochastic process as a surrogate function
-with some "active learning" criterion to find the optimum of an "arbitrary" 
-function using very few iterations. It can also be used for sequential experimental 
-design and stochastic bandits by selecting the adequate criterion.
-Using old C++ standards (C++98), it can be used with many compilers in Windows, 
-Linux, Mac OS. There are APIs for C/C++, Python and Matlab/Octave.
-**Important:** This code is free to use. However, if you are using, or plan to use, the library, //specially if it is for research or academic purposes//, please send me an [[|email]]  with your name, institution and a brief description of your interest for this code (one or two lines).
