OK, here is a compilation of the references I received. Posting it here makes it easily accessible. Maybe in the not-too-distant future I or someone else can set up a webpage or wiki somewhere which would make updates possible?
Disclaimer: In some cases I was only sent a link to a PDF which had no date or other info. I tried to make the list as harmonious as possible but this is not in any sense a publication-grade bibliography (nor is it exhaustive, it is more a reflection of
who responded to my query). If you want a recent overview of the field you could do worse than checking out the below ref. by Ognyanova & Monge, which appears to be really comprehensive.
