It's the study of very small particles... so small that quantization becomes a noticeable factor in their behavior. Adding to the answer above you would also see quantum beh…aviour in macroscopic objects if it was not for a phenomena called decoherence - an interaction with the wider environment that wipes out quantum behavior (MORE)

A quantum state is exactly as it sounds. It is the state in which a system is prepared. For example, one could say they have a system of particles and at time, t=(some number)…, the particles are at position qi (qi is a generalized coordinate) and have a momentum, p=(some number). You then know the state of the system. There are other properties that can be know for a particle. You could create a system of particles with a particular angular momentum or spin, etcetera. - A quantum fluctuation arises from Heisenberg's uncertainty principle which is \\delta E times \\delta t is greater than or equal to \\hbar and it is defined as the temporary change in the amount of energy in a point of space. This temporary change of energy only happens on a small time scale and leads to a break in energy conservation which then leads to the creation of what are called virtual particles. (MORE)

Quantum mechanics is the mathematical description of matter on an atomic and subatomic scale. It is focused around the wavefunction of a system. Wave functions contain all inf…ormation about the system such as: momentum, position, angular momentum, energy, etc. This information can only be known by its respective probability distributions. The basis of quantum mechanics in the wave mechanics formulation is the Schrodinger equation, which has two forms: the time-dependent and the time-independent. Quantum mechanics is a branch of mechanics concerned with mathematical modelling of the interaction and motion of subatomic particles. (MORE)

In physics, quantum is a discrete natural unit, or packet, of energy, charge, angular momentum, or other physical property.

Quantum mechanics deals with things on the atomic and subatomic level. Statistical mechanics deals with large systems, on the order of 10^23 particles. So those are currently …mutually exclusive areas of physics. That is not to say that one day that issue will be rectified, but as of current there is no overlap. Answer I disagree. Statistical mechanics explains the connection between the very small and the not-so-small things. It explains large-scale properties, such as energy, temperature, pressure, current, etc. in terms of the movements of particles at an atomic scale. Statistical mechanics was first formulated in the 19th century, before quantum mechanics, and was built on classical mechanics; however, it has also been done for quantum mechanics. (MORE)

Quantum gravity is a hypothetical theory that would combine quantum mechanics with Einstein's theory of general relativity (i.e. gravity). At present these are two different t…heories with their own domains of applicability and they do not mix. Quantum gravity is a quantum mechanical description of gravity. At this moment no such theory is known (or has been adequately tested and verified). Quantum gravity is desired because several objects, such as black holes, require the union of gravity with quantum mechanics to be made sense of. Without quantum gravity we can only get approximate answers. There are some models which claim to contain quantum gravity, such as string theory, but these have not yet been verified. String theory in particular is notorious for not having made any testable claims yet. (MORE)
