The Professor toolkit

Professor is a tool which creates parameterisations of very CPU-expensive functions, and uses them for tasks which require a lot of sampling – such as optimising input parameters or scanning a large parameter volume. The system was developed for (and is still mostly used in) tuning of Monte Carlo event generators for particle physics, but the method is very generally useful.
