2019-03-15 The 2nd Law of Entropy Increase was not violated on the IBM quantum computer, by Ioannis Antoniou. The recent claim about “time reversal on the IBM quantum computer” https://www.nature.com/articles/s41598-019-40765-6 is actually not a spontaneous Time Reversal but the result of external manipulation “by a Supersystem” as the authors themselves claim. The rapid propagation of this false impression in social media,  is more interesting than the result itself. https://www.technologyreview.com/s/613123/no-ibm-didnt-just-reverse-time-with-a-quantum-computer/. It is well known that Time Reversal is not relevant to the 2nd Law of Thermodynamics, since the decay of Neutral Kaon [1] and earlier discussions on the relation of Thermodynamics and Quantum Theory [2].
