While I'm learning jeppesen charts, I find a list of symbols related to lighting ground facilities, there are a lot of weird abbreviation such as:
Standard ALSF - 1/2, MALSR, SSALR, MALS, SALS, RLLS etc.?
I don't want someone explain all of these to me(because there are a lot of them), but give me source, where I can find them all with depiction and explanation.
Which of these are widely used, and why?

I know you said you didn't want to just be told what they meant, however in completeness of answering the question here are some abbreviations:

  • MALSR: Medium-intensity Approach Lighting System with Runway Alignment Indicator Lights
  • MALSF: Medium-intensity Approach Lighting System with Sequenced Flashing lights
  • SALS: Short Approach Lighting System
  • SSALS: Simplified Short Approach Lighting System
  • SSALR: Simplified Short Approach Lighting System with Runway Alignment Indicator Lights
  • SSALF: Simplified Short Approach Lighting System with Sequenced Flashing Lights
  • ODALS: Omnidirectional Approach Lighting System
  • ALSF-1: Approach Lighting System with Sequenced Flashing Lights configuration 1
  • ALSF-2: Approach Lighting System with Sequenced Flashing Lights configuration 2
  • CALVERT I/ICAO-1 HIALS: ICAO-compliant configuration 1 High Intensity Approach Lighting System
  • CALVERT II/ICAO-2 HIALS: ICAO-compliant configuration 2 High Intensity Approach Lighting System
  • LDIN: Lead-in lighting
  • REIL: Runway End Identification Lights
  • RAIL: Runway Alignment Indicator Lights

I found them here on wikipedia which has a nice entry on the subject

Check out the "Aeronautical Information Manual" available on the FAA website. Most of this are covered there with text and even system diagrams.
