Abstract: Let $(T,M^n)$ be a smooth involution on a closed $n$-dimensional manifold such that all Stiefel-Whitney classes of the tangent bundle to each component of the fixed point set $F$ of $(T,M^n)$ vanish in positive dimension. In this paper, we estimate the least possible lower bound of dim$F$ if $(T,M^n)$ does not bound.
