A displacement, is to use one frame to displace another. The displacement is based on a number of things depending on your options, in the program I believe the default is luminosity. So where the pixel in your displacement layer is bright, it'll push the pixels in the layer below in one direction, where the pixels in the displacement layer are dark, the pixels are pushed in the opposite direction, if the pixel is grey, there is no displacement.

Now that you know the its one layer displacing another, I would recommend google searching for it, this will bring up some examples of both layers so you can see for yourself what it does.
