The article series starts at basic drag-and-scrolling, and then continues to momentum scrolling, and so forth. Even though the content is over 3 years old, it is still relevant and easy to understand.

This presentation from ScrollerJS (not embedded here, due to Mixed Content Warnings) also came in handy during research.
