Positive overflow refers to integer representations and refers to a number that is larger than can be represented in a given number of bits. 

Exponent overflow refers to floating point representations and refers to a positive exponent that exceeds the maximum possible exponent value. 

Significand overflow occurs when the addition of two significands of the same sign result in a carry out of the most significant bit.
