You can find an explanation (with math included) of cvFindHomography at:

Gary Bradsky & Adrian Kaehler, "Learning OpenCV: Computer Vision with the OpenCV Library".
O'Reilly 2008. Chapter 11: Camera Models and Calibration. Page 384.

For the RANSAC algorithm, there must be something else out there, but you can take a look at the original paper:

M.A. Fischler and R.C. Bolles, "Random sample concensus: A paradigm for model fitting with applications to image analysis and automated cartography".
Communications of the Association for Computing Machinery 24 (1981):381-395

Hope this helps

On this page I have found a pretty good explanation of Homography with DLT (but without RANSAC)
