Abstract: We obtain estimations for isotopy classes of embeddings of closed connected manifolds into for and . This is done in terms of an exact sequence involving the Whitney invariants and an explicitly constructed action of 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 is a closed almost parallelizable connected manifold and . Then the set of isotopy classes of embeddings is in 11 correspondence with for .
