Although it might not be the level of introduction you're looking for, a
recent ACM Computing Surveys has an overview article:
David F. Bacon, Susan L. Graham, and Oliver J. Sharp. "Compiler
Transformations for High-Performance Computing." Computing Surveys
26(4):345-420, Dec. 1994.
On a more introductory level, aimed at the programmer rather than at the
compiler implementor, is the following book. You may find Chapter 4, "What
an Optimizing Compiler Does," of special interest:
Kevin Dowd. High Performance Computing. O'Reilly & Associates, 1993.
