In mathematics, **Lawson's conjecture** states that the Clifford torus is the only minimally embedded torus in the 3-sphere *S*^{3}. The conjecture was featured by the Australian Mathematical Society Gazette as part of the *Millennium Problems* series.

In March 2012, Simon Brendle gave a proof of this conjecture, based on maximum principle techniques.
