Abstract. In order to better understand the structure of closed collec- tions of reversible gates, we investigate the lattice of closed sets and the maximal members of this lattice. In this note, we find the maximal closed sets over a finite alphabet. We find that for odd sized alphabets, there are a finite number of maximal closed sets, while for the even case we have a countable infinity, almost all of which are related to an alternat- ing permutations. We then extend to other forms of closure for reversible gates, ancilla and borrow closure. Here we find some structural results, including some examples of maximal closed sets.
