I have the following code:

var cloudShadowBitMask = (1 << 3);
var cloudsBitMask = (1 << 5) ;

Can anyone explain the methods to me?

There is a long post here that explains some of the details: Cloud mask for Landsat8 on Google Earth Engine

If you still have questions; it helps to ask specific ones. Else you are refered to the forum of earth engine for details: https://groups.google.com/forum/#!forum/google-earth-engine-developers
