`weighted utility = mean(U) / mean_cost`. If `use_mean=False`, it uses
samples `C = (c_1, ..., c_N)` from the posterior of the cost model and

cost_model: A Model modeling the cost of evaluating a candidate
set `X`, where `X` are the same features as in the model for the
acquisition function this is to be used with. If no cost_objective
is specified, the outputs are required to be non-negative.

samples from the cost model.

posterior samples from the cost model. This can be used e.g. to
un-transform predictions/samples of a cost model fit on the
log-transformed cost (often done to ensure non-negativity).

too close to zero, which may cause numerical issues.
