Unerwartete Operation
Explanation:
Probably the error message when you try to calculate sqrt(-1) or 5/0 or similar. Operation = Rechenoperation. Ganz richtig wäre eigentlich "undefinierte Operation", aber wenn da "unexpected" steht und der Kontext nicht eindeutig ist, spekuliert man besser nicht zu viel.
