# DESCRIPTION

This routine computes the predictive distribution of a Gaussian process,
whose covariance function is given by cov_func and whose dimensions are
independent. mus is the vector of means and sigmas the vector of covariance
matrices of the independent Gaussians.
The necessary information to compute the predictive distribution is:
train_indices - the indices where the training data comes from
train_data - the training data
noise_sigma - the variance of the gaussian noise process
test_indices - where the prediction will take place.
Naturally, the vectors of test_indices must all be of equal length, as must the
vectors of train_indices and train_data.
If the vector pointed to by sample is NULL, then a vector of the appropriate size
is created. If it exists, but is the wrong size, then it is recreated. Otherwise,
the storage is recycled.
# RETURNS

If the routine fails (due to storage allocation, an error in the
covariance function, or a mismatch in the sizes of the indices), then ERROR
is returned with and error message being set. Otherwise NO_ERROR is returned.
# DISCLAIMER

This software is not adequatedly tested. It is recomended that
results are checked independantly where appropriate.
