Computes the optimal GP model by optimizing the marginal likelihood

1 2 3 4 |

`x` |
input points |

`y` |
output values (same length as |

`x.targets` |
target points |

`noise` |
observational noise (variance), either NULL, a constant scalar or a vector |

`nsnoise` |
estimate non-stationary noise from replicates, if possible (default) |

`nskernel` |
use non-stationary kernel |

`expectedmll` |
use an alternative expected mll optimization criteria |

`params` |
gaussian kernel parameters: |

`defaultparams` |
initial parameters for optimization (5-length vector) |

`lbounds` |
lower bounds for parameters (5-length vector) |

`ubounds` |
upper bounds for parameters (5-length vector) |

`optim.restarts` |
restarts in the gradient ascent (default=3) |

`derivatives` |
compute also GP derivatives |

Parameter optimization performed through L-BFGS using analytical gradients
with restarts. The input points `x`

and output values y need to be matching
length vectors. If replicates are provided, they are used to estimate dynamic
observational noise.

The resulting GP model is encapsulated in the return object. The estimated posterior
is in `targets$pmean`

and `targets$pstd`

for target points `x.targets`

.
Use `plot.gp`

to visualize the GP.
