In this paper we consider the problem of global Gevrey and analytic regularity for a class of partial differential operators on a torus in the form of a sum of squares of vector fields, which may not satisfy the bracket condition. We show that these operators are globally Gevrey or analytic hypoelliptic on the torus if and only if the coefficients satisfy certain Diophantine approximation properties.
