The torus is the manifold (a smooth manifold, hence in particular also a topological manifold) obtained as the quotient
of the Cartesian plane, regarded as an abelian group, by the subgroup of pairs of integers.
As a topological space this is the quotient topological space obtained from the square by identifying opposite sides:

More generally, for $n \in \mathbb{N}$ any natural number, the $n$-torus is
For $n = 1$ this is the circle.
In this fashion each torus canonically carries the structure of an abelian group, in fact of an abelian Lie group. Notice that regarded as a group the torus carries a base point (the neutral element).
According to SGA3, for $X$ a base scheme then a 1-dimensional torus (in the sense of tori-as-groups) over it is a group scheme over $X$ which becomes isomorphic to the multiplicative group over $X$ after a faithfully flat group extension.
In (Lawson-Naumann 12, def. A.1) this is called “a form of” the multiplicative group over $X$.
By (Lawson-Naumann 12, prop. A.4) the moduli stack of 1-dimensional tori $\mathcal{M}_{1dtori}$ in this sense is equivalent to the delooping of the group of order two:
The single nontrival automorphism of any 1-dimensional toris here is that induced by the canonical automorphism of the multiplicative group
which is the inversion involution (given by sending any element to its inverse element).
As a homotopy type the torus is the product of two copies of the circle.
In homotopy type theory the torus can be formalized as the higher inductive type generated by a point base
, two paths, $p$ and $q$, from base
to itself, and an element $t$ of $p\cdot q = q \cdot p$. It has been formally shown (Sojakova15) that this type is equivalent to the product of two circles. For a treatment in cubical type theory, see (Licata-Brunierie).

The stable homotopy type of the torus is the wedge sum of 2 circles and one 2-sphere (eg. Freed & Moore 13, Thm. 11.8):
