Let be a finite group and a compact smooth manifold. It is of interest which smooth manifolds can be the -fixed point sets of smooth -actions on . The deleting-inserting theorem of this paper is related to this problem and has applications to one-fixed-point actions on spheres as well as to Smith equivalence.
