Representation of reversible cellular automata with block permutations

We demonstrate the structural invertibility of all reversible one- and two-dimensional cellular automata. More precisely, we prove that every reversible two-dimensional cellular automaton can be expressed as a combination of four block permutations, and some shift-like mappings. Block permutations are very simple functions that uniformly divide configurations into rectangular regions of equal size and apply a fixed permutation on all regions.
