    Any programming language that supports concurrency requires features that are able to express the access control for shared resources. This is however only a part of the whole expanse of concurrency. This thesis examines the types of concurrency that are available to language designers. The various criteria that play an important role in any concurrent language (such as synchronization or communication etc) will be examined in relation to existing concurrent languages. From this will be seen to develop points for consideration when designing a concurrent language.
