Does the Algorithms section on the documentation page for the bwmorph function provide enough information?

Of course. The source is
[3] Lam, L., Seong-Whan Lee, and Ching Y. Suen, "Thinning Methodologies-A Comprehensive Survey," IEEE Transactions on Pattern Analysis and Machine Intelligence, Vol 14, No. 9, September 1992, page 879, bottom of first column through top of second column.
What do you expect them to do? Include the entire paper in the MATLAB documentation for bwmorph()? That's NOT going to happen. You're just going to have to order the paper if you want more details.
