There is a much simpler algorithm developed by Keith Cooper, Tim Harvey and
Ken Kennedy -- A Simple, Fast Dominance Algorithm:


http://www.cs.rice.edu/~keith/EMBED/dom.pdf


It is at least as fast and much easier to understand. I also recommend
"Engineering A Compiler" by Keith Cooper and Linda Torczon.
