Since Thom rather would spend his time mocking you over your question than to just explain short what they are, I'll try to quickly answer you.

"Compiz is one of the first OpenGL-accelerated compositing window managers for the X Window System." from the Wikipedia page:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Compiz

"AIGLX is 'Accelerated Indirect GL X'. AIGLX is a project that aims to enable GL-accelerated effects on a standard desktop." From the project page:
http://fedoraproject.org/wiki/RenderingProject/aiglx

Which I guess is a different way of saying "AIGLX is a fancy-pants version of X."
