We study generic bifurcations of equilibria in one-parameter Hamiltonian systems with symmetry group Γ on the generalized eigenvalues of the linearized system go through zero. Theorem 3.3 classifies expected actions of Γ on the generalized eigenspace of this zero eigenvalue. Generic one degree of freedom symmetric systems is section 4; remarks concerning systems with more degrees of freedom are given in section 5.

We are grateful to Jerry Marsden, Debbie Lewis and Tudor Ratiu for suggesting to us that a generic description of transition in Hamiltonian systems with symmetry would be worthwhile. More accurately, this paper presents the results of a community discussion. The research of M.G. was supported in part by the AMSP program of DARPA, NASA Grant NAG-2279 and by NSF Grant DMS-8402604.
