> Hi guys, looking for the paper that introduced the concept of islands or explains them in enough depth to act as a reference. so far I haven't had much joy :/

see for example the 'Connected components' section of: http://www.cs.cornell.edu/Courses/cs...phs/lec26.html
bodies are represented by graph nodes, if there is at least one constraint between 2 bodies a edge connecting them is created.

You can also look for splitting and blocking methods, and perhaps also spectral analysis in numerical linear algebra. This is about finding disconnected or weakly connected blocks in a large system of equations (i.e. a matrix problem), and as mentioned, this is often done using graph traversals.
These blocks or "islands" can then be solved independently and coupled using additive Schwarz.
