Abstract base class of interpolants over parametric samples.

The parameter domain is one dimensional, typically the time or a path along a curve defined by the data.

The sample values can have any dimensionality and derived classes may apply special interpretations to the data.

This class provides the interval seek in a Template Method, deferring the actual interpolation to derived classes.

Time complexity is *O(1)* for linear access crossing at most two points and *O(log N)* for random access, where *N* is the number of positions.

[name]( parameterPositions, sampleValues, sampleSize, resultBuffer )

parameterPositions -- array of positions
sampleValues -- array of samples
sampleSize -- number of samples
resultBuffer -- buffer to store the interpolation results.

Note: This is not designed to be called directly.

[property:Object settings]

Optional, subclass-specific settings structure.

[method:Array evaluate]( [param:Number t] )

Evaluate the interpolant at position *t*.
