Let \(G\) be the linear group of the Euclidean space \(V={\mathbb R}^d\) and \({\mathbb T}^d\) be the \(d\)-dimensional torus \({\mathbb T}^d={\mathbb R}^d/{\mathbb Z}^d,\) where \({\mathbb Z}^d\) is the lattice of integer points in \({\mathbb R}^d\). In the paper a subsemigroup \(T\) of \(G\) is considered. The orbit closures of \(T\) in \(V\) are studied. The results are applied to semigroups of endomorphisms of the \(d\)-dimensional torus.
