There is nothing in particular in scipy which forms the surrogate
models except perhaps splines in scipy.interpolate if the dimensions
are small. There is some Gaussian process (equivalent to kriging) code
Once you have fitted the surrogate model, you can make a function from
it to pass to any of the optimization routines in scipy.optimize.

enigma that is made terrible by our own mad attempt to interpret it as
though it had an underlying truth."
