Abstract: We generalize the classical notion of reversibility of a mechanical system. The generic qualitative properties of symmetric orbits of such systems are studied using transversality theory. In particular, we prove analogues of the closed orbit, Liapounov, and homoclinic orbit theorems for R-reversible systems.
