Two-dimensional reversible cellular automata constructions may have utility for modeling problems that entail inherently reversible processes, such as optical propagation. This paper speculates on the potential of methods articulated in A New Kind of Science [1] for addressing inverse problems in optical scatterometry, and then describes preliminary work for two-dimensional reversible cellular automaton schemes.
