This sort of analysis is called "array section analysis."
A paper is
author="Vasanth Balasundaram and Ken Kennedy",
title="A Technique for Summarizing Data Access and Its Use in
Parallelism Enhancing Transformations",
where "pldi89" is the proceedings of the 1989 condference on
Programming Language Design and Implementation.
