Aharonov et al. introduced the concept of weak values [1] as statistical averages of weak measurements on a quantum system whose states both before and after the measurement are known. As opposed to the standard value, the weak value can lie outside the spectrum of eigenvalues of the measured operator, can be negative for positive defined quantities, and can even be complex.
