T
 Type of the object.public interface TimeInterpolable<T extends TimeInterpolable<T>>
Modifier and Type  Method and Description 

default T 
interpolate(AbsoluteDate date,
Collection<T> sample)
Get an interpolated instance.

T 
interpolate(AbsoluteDate date,
Stream<T> sample)
Get an interpolated instance.

default T interpolate(AbsoluteDate date, Collection<T> sample)
Note that the state of the current instance may not be used in the interpolation process, only its type and non interpolable fields are used (for example central attraction coefficient or frame when interpolating orbits). The interpolable fields taken into account are taken only from the states of the sample points. So if the state of the instance must be used, the instance should be included in the sample points.
Note that this method is designed for small samples only (say up to about 1020 points) so it can be implemented using polynomial interpolation (typically Hermite interpolation). Using too much points may induce Runge's phenomenon and numerical problems (including NaN appearing).
