aliasing

1. <jargon> When several different identifiers refer to the same object. The term is very general and is used in many contexts.

See alias, aliasing bug, anti-aliasing.

2. <hardware> (Or "shadowing") Where a hardware device responds at multiple addresses because it only decodes a subset of the address lines, so different values on the other lines are ignored.
