Deleting and Inserting Fixed-Point Sets on Disks , by Masaharu Morimoto

It is a basic problem to determine manifolds which can occur as the fixed-point sets of smooth actions on spheres of a given finite group. This paper solves the problem in the case where the finite group is a nontrivial perfect group or a nilpotent Oliver group.
