Here’s a nice overview of how touch events are modelled in mobile Safari on the iphone. Here’s a student paper detailing some multi-touch code architectures and actual code too.

Here’s a nice article on single point gesture recognition for games, here are lovely simple single stroke and multi-stroke gesture recognisers in javascript. Here’s the corresponding paper. Here’s a paper about modelling gestures using Markov chains.

And here’s a gesture recognition discussion thread featuring some of the above links and many more.
