Are you asking about the clang static analyzer?

We've recently gave a talk on the static analyzer. See "Building a checker in 24 hours" at http://llvm.org/devmtg/2012-11/ The talk is targeted at someone writing a new check extension to the analyzer so it only has a very high level description of the internals.

There is some additional documentation on the analyzer's website and in the clang/docs/analyzer directory (+ a patch for extensions to the Checker Developer Manual is currently in review: http://clang-developers.42468.n3.nabble.com/Patch-Update-to-Checker-Development-Manual-td4031120.html) 

However, there is currently no document fully describing the internals of the analyzer. The analyzer is inspired by many papers on path-sensitive dataflow analysis, see http://lists.cs.uiuc.edu/pipermail/cfe-dev/2009-January/003996.html
