Reversible Machine Code and its Abstract Processor Architecture

Date: Friday, November 9th, 2007
Time: 14:00 (c.t.)
Location: TU Wien, Elektrotechnik, EI 3 Sahulka-Hörsaal, Gusshausstraße 25-29 (Altbau), 2. Stock


A reversible abstract machine architecture and its reversible machine code are presented and formalized. For machine code to be reversible, both the underlying control logic and each instruction must be reversible. A general class of machine instruction sets is proven to be reversible, building on our concept of reversible updates. The presentation is abstract and can serve as a guideline for a family of reversible processor designs. By example, we illustrate programming principles for the abstract machine architecture formalized in this talk. (Joint work with Holger Bock Axelsen and Tetsuo Yokoyama.)
