We present in this paper a fine-grained rollback primitive for the higher-order π-calculus (HOπ), that builds on the reversibility apparatus of reversible HOπ [9]. The definition of a proper semantics for such a primitive is a surprisingly delicate matter because of the potential interferences between concurrent rollbacks. We define in this paper a high-level operational semantics which we prove sound and complete with respect to reversible HOπ backward reduction. We also define a lower-level distributed semantics, which is closer to an actual implementation of the rollback primitive, and we prove it to be fully abstract with respect to the high-level semantics.
