Multi-precision is one of several more or less interchangeable terms to indicate that the precision of a value is limited by the amount of memory available as opposed to the size of the primitive data type. For example in the case of Java, large integers are represented internally to the BigInteger class by arrays of integral values. See for example [1] for more information and links.
