how is the income driven repayment plan for federal student loans calculated?

Hello and Good Evening Everyone,

            I am interested in any link or links which illustrate the actual steps of determining repayment terms of student loans.  I know such factors like income, filing status, household size, amount owed, etc. are somehow jointly used in determining the monthly repayment amount.  However, I am not sure how the calculations are determined.  

           With everything said, could someone shed some light on this question?  I will look forward to reviewing everyone's comments.

            Thank you

            George

There is an estimator app on a US Dept of Educations website, and there are more relevant links there as well.
