Abstract : Abstract : The strength of program static analysis techniques lies on its ability to de- tect faulty behaviors prior to the execution. This ability requires that the analysis process foresees any possible runtime scenario. A task which is even more complex in the case of concurrent programs, because of the number of alternatives introduced by the usual nondeterminism. In this particular case, some of the most common faulty behaviors are those about erroneous usage of resources, presence of deadlocks and data race conflicts. Behavioral type systems for programming languages provide a strong mechanism for reasoning on programs actions at static time. In this the- sis we discuss two static analysis techniques based on this approach. The first one, targets the resource usage in an ad-hoc language with full-fledged operations for acquiring and releasing virtual machines. The second one, targets the deadlock analysis of Java programs. In both cases we provide a formal proof of correctness, along with pro- totype implementations that allow practically to test the feasibility of these solutions. These prototypes have also allowed assessing these techniques against others existing in the literature obtaining very encouraging results.
