The Abhidhamma has very detailed explanations of this subject.

There are, as far as I know, two lineages of the Abhidhamma/Abhidharma, one being the Abhidhamma studied by Theravada, another one by the Tibetan school.

There are three books about the Abhidhamma which can be viewed on-line or downloaded from the net. I have listed their URLs (they belong to the Theravada lineage):

The Abhidhamma: A Manual of Abhidhamma (by Nárada Thera, Vájiráráma, Colombo)

Introducing Buddhist Abhidhamma, Meditation and Concentration (by U Kyaw Min, I. C.S.)
http://www.palikanon.com/english/intro-abhidhamma/book_i.htm

The Abhidhamma (by Peter Della Santina)
http://www.saigon.com/~anson/ebud/s-abhidham/s-abhi00.htm (there are some good articles on this site, for instance: http://www.saigon.com/~anson/ebud/ebdha064.htm)
