## Abstract

Fortune (1985) proved Arnold's conjecture for complex projective spaces, by exploiting the fact that CPn-1 is a symplectic quotient of C-n. In this paper, we show that Fortune's approach is universal in the sense that it is possible to translate Arnold's conjecture on any closed symplectic manifold (Q,Omega) to a critical point problem with symmetry on loops in R(2n) With its Standard symplectic structure.
