DPS=Damage per second
For example if you do 1,000 damage every second, your dps is 1,000. Usually dps is useful in PvE settings
DPS does NOT=damage, people usually say DPS when they are really taking about pure damage.

basically:
Damage- a raw number (IE my force scream crits for 5k damage)
DPS- damage/time (IE my dps is 1700). Most used when talking PvE
Burst- kind of like DPS but instead of a constant rate over time it spikes. (IE you do 500dps, then time abilities and burst to 2000dps, then back down to 500dps) Most used when talking PvP
