Abstract: We obtain estimations for isotopy classes of embeddings of closed $ k$-connected $ n$-manifolds into $ \mathbb{R}^{2n-k-1}$ for $ n\ge 2k+6$ and $ k\ge 0$. This is done in terms of an exact sequence involving the Whitney invariants and an explicitly constructed action of $ H_{k+1}(N;\mathbb{Z}_{2})$ on the set of embeddings. The proof involves a reduction to the classification of embeddings of a punctured manifold and uses the parametric connected sum of embeddings.

Corollary. Suppose that $ N$ is a closed almost parallelizable $ k$-connected $ n$-manifold and $ n\ge 2k+6\ge 8$. Then the set of isotopy classes of embeddings $ N\to \mathbb{R}^{2n-k-1}$ is in 1-1 correspondence with $ H_{k+2}(N;\mathbb{Z} _{2})$ for $ n-k=4s+1$.
