In the classical equation, one looks for $R\in\Lambda^2\mathfrak g$ such that $$[R,R]=0,$$ where the bracket is Schouten's bracker in $\Lambda^\bullet\mathfrak g$, the exterior algebra on a Lie algebra $\mathfrak g$. In the quantum one (in its non-parametric form...), one looks for endomorphisms $R:V\otimes V\to V\otimes V$ of tensor squares of vector spaces $V$ such that $$R_{12} \ R_{13} \ R_{23} = R_{23} \ R_{13} \ R_{12},$$
