What are the operations on the signals recieved by a GPS reciever ? How does it process them towards achieving a position fix ?

I need explanation with the decoding and correlating part of the signal. How does it determine the position of a satellite when the signal it is recieving from many satellite is mixed up with the signals from other satellites in the wireless medium .

I'd be glad if you point me to a good article/link that explains this well. Thanks
