5. The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018)
overflow

    The condition that occurs when the result of a
   calculation is too big to store in the intended format.  For
   example, the result of adding one to 255 cannot be represented
   as an unsigned, eight-bit integer.  In a signed integer
   representation, overflow can occur when an integer becomes
   either too positive or too negative.

   Overflow can also occur in the exponent of a floating point
   number representation.  The term "underflow" is sometimes
   used for negative overflow of the exponent.

   Ignoring overflow will result in nonsensicle results such as
   255 + 1 = 0.  At the hardware level, the ALU typically
   indicates overflow by setting an overflow flag bit which the
   program can test.  Programming languages will typically
   respond to overflow by raising some kind of signal or other
   error condition to halt normal execution.

   Some languages attempt to avoid overflow by providing
   (optional) variable length number representation
   (multiprecission arithmetic) so that the maximum number
   representable is limited only by the amount of storage
   available.
