Various types of notation that don't have compositional semantics. Notation is commonly called abuse of notation if it involves suppression of parameters or synecdoche (which overlap), and examples are given under those headings. Other usage is sometimes referred to as abuse of notation, for example identifying two structures along an isomorphism between them.
