From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  aliasing
  shadowing
  
     1.  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.  (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.
