    $\begingroup$ Have you looked at the standard books with "Invariant Theory" in their title? It will be helpful to answerers to know what you have already considered. The wikipedia page on the subject lists several great texts (among which is H. Kraft and C. Procesi's Classical Invariant Theory, a Primer, which is very nice), and googling brings up a surprising number of notes on the subject. $\endgroup$ – Mariano Suárez-Álvarez Sep 15 '15 at 6:37

A couple of survey papers are here and here. There is also a book by Mara Neusel and Larry Smith.
