Can you explain the process of rollbacks and reverts in Polygon zkEVM? Are they the same?

Polygon zkEVM is an extension of the good old EVM, it allows for private computations to be performed on the blockchain using zk proofs.

The process of rollbacks and reverts is similar to regular EVMs. So when there is an error or a condition that triggers a revert, it uses the REVERT instruction to stop the execution and then returns an error message. 

Rollbacks can also happen sometimes because of an invalid zk proof (this triggers something new to Polygon zkEVM) which would cause the transaction to be aborted and all the state changes to be undone.
