I am working on my thesis in which i am focusing on Computer vision. I need to write explanation to every part of my implementation. One part of my implementation is using method findContours, but i cant find any documentation which would explain the algorithm behind this method. If someone could point me to documentation which would descibe how this method works, that would be great. Thank you.

Just search for Suzuki, S. and Abe, K., Topological Structural Analysis of Digitized Binary Images by Border Following. CVGIP 30 1, pp 32-46.

Necessary papers are usually linked in the documentation(also here): http://docs.opencv.org/modules/imgproc/doc/structural_analysis_and_shape_descriptors.html?highlight=findcontours#findcontours
