for most of you this might be a simple question:

Is it possible to embed the flat torus in Euclidean space?

If we, for example, take a rectangle and identify the left and the right sides we get a cylinder shell, that can be embedded easily in R^3. If we construct the flat torus by identifying opposite sides, can we find an embedding in higher dimensions? Why is it possible or not?

Thanx for help.
