Abstract: Let $ {Z_{(2)}}$ denote the ring of rational 2-adic integers. In this paper, we consider the group $ {\Psi _k}$ of $ {Z_{(2)}}$-cobordism classes of $ {Z_{(2)}} - \operatorname{knot} (\Sigma ^{k + 2}, \,{K^k})$, where $ \Sigma $ is a 1-connected $ {Z_{(2)}}$-sphere $ {Z_{(2)}}$-cobordant to $ {S^{k + 2}}$, and K is a 1-connected $ {Z_{(2)}}$-sphere embedded in $ \Sigma $ with trivial normal bundle. For $ n \geqslant 3$, we will prove that $ {\Psi _{2n}} = 0$ and $ {\Psi _{2n - 1}} = {C_\varepsilon }({Z_{(2)}})$, $ \varepsilon = {( - 1)^n}$. Also, we will show that the group $ \Theta _{4m - 1}^{4m + 1}$ of L-equivalence classes of differentiable involutions on $ (4m + 1)$-homotopy spheres with codimension two fixed point sets defined by Bredon contains infinitely many copies of Z.
