Introducing Reversibility in a High Level JJL Qubit Model According to CAN2 Paradigm
Reversibility is a concept widely studied in physics as well as in computer science. Reversible computation is characterized by means of invertible properties . Quantum systems evolution is described by the time evolution operator U, which is unitary and invertible; therefore such systems can implement reversibility. Reversible/invertible Cellular Automata (CA)  are one of the most relevant reversible computational models. Here we introduce a model for a Josephson junction ladder (JJL) device addressing reversibility: it is based on a hybrid Cellular Automata Network (CAN), the CAN2 one.
