That seems like an unusual question for a forum about AVR Megas!

What was google invented for?

Where did you find that term?  it always helps to give context!

 

Which part are you stuck with - do you know what "inverting" means? what an "oscillator" is? what an "amplifier" is?

 

These are basic electronics terms - nothing specifically to do with AVR.

What is an inverting oscillator amplifier?

Perhaps you are referring to the circuitry between the XTAL1 (inptut) and XTAL2 (output) pins..?

Texas Instruments Application Report SZZA043

Use of the CMOS Unbuffered Inverter in Oscillator Circuits

 

CMOS devices have a high input impedance, high gain, and high bandwidth. These
characteristics are similar to ideal amplifier characteristics and, hence, a CMOS buffer or
inverter can be used in an oscillator circuit in conjunction with other passive components.
Now, CMOS oscillator circuits are widely used in high-speed applications because they are
economical, easy to use, and take significantly less space than a conventional oscillator.
Among the CMOS devices, the unbuffered inverter (’U04) is widely used in oscillator
applications. This application report discusses the performance of some TI ’U04 devices in
a typical crystal-oscillator circuit.
