Abstract: A basis is presented for the $ {\mathbf{R}}{{\mathbf{P}}^n}$ classes in $ {\mathfrak{N}_n}(BO)$. This basis is used to prove that every smooth involution $ (M,T)$ on a closed manifold bounds if its fixed point set is a disjoint union of odd-dimensional projective spaces of constant dimension.
