Ideas that are used in the design, development, and performance of concurrency control mechanisms have been summarized. The locking, time-stamp, optimistic-based mechanisms are included. The ideas of validation in the optimistic approach are presented in some detail. The degree of concurrency and classes of serializability for various algorithms have been presented. Questions that relate arrival rate of transactions with degree of concurrency and performance have been briefly presented. Finally, several useful ideas for increasing concurrency have been summarized. They include flexible transactions, adaptability, prewrites, multidimensional time stamps, and relaxation of two-phase locking
