Thanks for your answers.

Do you have URLs to some papers or articles about what you describe?
What I planned to do is explained on Wikipedia[0] and we also did this
in one lecture at university with the additional requirement of the data
points being equidistant (which we can't require for the controller
unfortunately) and then using the DFT to get coefficients for a real
trigonometric polynomial like[1].

Using sinc() sounds interesting too though, would be nice to have
something to read about interpolating with those :)
