#### Abstract

The selection of a ‘good’ mutual exclusion algorithm, for the design of distributed systems, is of great importance. A number of mutual exclusion algorithms, with different techniques and varying performance characteristics, are available in the literature. These algorithms can be broadly classified into token based algorithms and non-token based algorithms. A number of survey papers for non-token based mutual exclusion algorithms exist. Although, some of them include discussion on token based mutual exclusion algorithms too, however, none of them include any discussion on the newer variants of classic mutual exclusion, like k-mutual exclusion and group mutual exclusion. The paper presents an exhaustive survey of the token based mutual exclusion algorithms. The variants of mutual exclusion problem, namely k-mutual exclusion and group mutual exclusion, have also been covered. *Copyright © 2017 Praise Worthy Prize - All rights reserved.*
