What exactly is it? I'm thinking it's along the lines of statistics, but I'm not really sure.

Memory Alpha just mentions that Data was mentioned to have studied it in a couple of episodes: Probability mechanics - Memory Alpha, the Star Trek Wiki

So, -shug- ^^;

Yeah, I've seen the page. Even looked at some forums, but they all have the same mystified response: It's either statistical mechanics, or something to do with predictive analysis based on quantum mechanics. I dunno =p

Well, as far as I can tell, it looks like a sci-fi term that just lumped together the buzz words "probability" and "quantum mechanics." It does sound like a title for a legitimate field of study though, so I wouldn't be surprised if it turns out to be referring to something real.

Well there's a graduate program I've seen for something called Analytics, which involves business admin, predictive statistics, computer science, and applied math. So I figure that might be a close relative.
