Looking for description of JVM internal threads

I am writing a document about JVM internal threads e.g.

* "Attach Listener"
* "VM Thread"
* "C2 CompilerThreadXX"
* "Signal Dispatcher"
* "Finalizer"
* "Reference Handler"
* "Low Memory Detector"
* "VM Periodic Task Thread"
* ""GC task thread#XX"

The purpose of the document is to help the team to analyze and
identify issues from native stack captured from JVM
in production.

Can you recommend any source of information about them such as  what
are the role of each thread,
how they communicate with each other, how they are kicked off, etc. ?
