process identifiers (pid) and namespaces

Hi

re : process identifiers and namespaces

thanks google , i can find the meanings of uid, uid, euid,suid, fsuid; gid_t gid, egid, sgid, fsgid (inside struct task_struct ).

But I still find hard to form a relationship between different IDs and their role in namespaces.
