In general, quantum computation models are expected to be more powerful than classical counterparts. However, sometimes this is not the case.It is known that there exists some regular language which one-way quantum finite automata and one-way quantum counter automata cannot recognize. This is due to the restriction of reversibility which quantum models must satisfy. Thus, it is an interesting question: what kinds of quantum models suffer from/overcome the restriction? To tackle this problem, we focus on (empty-stack acceptance) one-way quantum pushdown automata, and show that there exists a regular language which one-way quantum pushdown automata cannot recognize. This implies adding a stack to one-way finite automata cannot overcome the restriction of reversibility if we adopt empty-stack acceptance as the acceptance mode.
