(e) There was an evident material miscalculation of figures or an evident material mistake in the description of any person, thing or property referred to in the award.
(f) The arbitrators awarded upon a matter not submitted to them, unless it was a matter not affecting the merits of the decision upon the matters submitted.
(g) The award is in violation of law.
