I am a student. I want to use jikes RVM for my education work. 

I am looking in optimizing compilers area.  I want to understand the optimization techniques used in jikes RVM. 

Please any one tell me from where should I begin. 

I have already gone through some research papers. But I am able to find out the details about each optimization like global common sub-expression elimination etc .
