Hi . My name is Marek I am Polish . Could You explain me what exactly word "postestimation" means ?


  • post- used as a prefix means before
    estimation means the process of estimating or assessing without great accuracy
    postestimation would therefore mean estimating after some (usually known) event occurred.
