"""
Provides the functional used by

The implementation of a scalar function with its gradient and curvature at some position.
The Energy object is an implementation of a scalar function including its
gradient and curvature at some position.
Parameters

position : Field
, float
The parameter of the scalar function
and its first and second derivative
.
position : Field
The
input
parameter of the scalar function.
Attributes

position : Field, float
The Field location in parameter space where value, gradient and curvature is evaluated.
value : float
The evaluation of the energy functional at given position.
gradient : Field, float
The gradient at given position in parameter direction.
curvature : callable
A positive semidefinite operator or function describing the curvature of the potential
at given position.
Raises

NotImplementedError
Raised if
* value, gradient or curvature is called
AttributeError
Raised if
* copying of the position fails
position : Field
The Field location in parameter space where value, gradient and
curvature are evaluated.
value : np.float
The value of the energy functional at given `position`.
gradient : Field
The gradient at given `position` in parameter direction.
curvature : LinearOperator, callable
A positive semidefinite operator or function describing the curvature
of the potential at the given `position`.
Notes

The Energy object gives the blueprint how to formulate the model in order to apply
various inference schemes. The functions value, gradient and curvature have to be
implemented according to the concrete inference problem.
An instance of the Energy class is defined at a certain location. If one
is interested in the value, gradient or curvature of the abstract energy
functional one has to 'jump' to the new position using the `at` method.
This method returns a new energy instance residing at the new position. By
this approach, intermediate results from computing e.g. the gradient can
safely be reused for e.g. the value or the curvature.
Memorizing the evaluations of some quantities minimizes the computational effort
for multiple calls.
Memorizing the evaluations of some quantities (using the memo decorator)
minimizes the computational effort for multiple calls.
