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.

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.
Optional, subclass-specific settings structure.
Evaluate the interpolant at position *t*.
