HeapLang is a lambdacalculus with operations to allocate individual locations,
`load`

`store`
,
`CAS`
(compareandswap) and
`FAA`
(fetchandadd). Moreover,
it has a
`fork`
construct to spawn new threads. In terms of values, we have
integers, booleans, unit, heap locations as well as (binary) sums and products.
