That's a huge subject and whole volumes could (and have!) been written even
on small parts of it. One good place to get ideas is this series;
http://www.soundonsound.com/sos/allsynthsecrets.htm (early parts are on the
bottom of the page).

This is mostly about creating sounds with traditional synths, but it is
abstracted far enough to be useful anywhere. I think the main reason why
that series has such a good reputation is that it's very accessible (no
higher math or physics needed) yet doesn't sacrifice depth. The diagrams are
nice and clear too.
