George is a fast and flexible Python library for Gaussian Process Regression. A full introduction to the theory of Gaussian Processes is beyond the scope of this documentation but the best resource is available for free online: Rasmussen & Williams (2006).

George is being actively developed in a public repository on GitHub so if you have any trouble, open an issue there.
