For a sequence of growing Reynolds numbers the azimuthal velocity component was measured by a laser Doppler velocimeter using data acquisition system. The power spectra and temporal behaviour of narrow-band filtered velocity flucuations for the spatial states of 28 and 30 Taylor vortices were studied to clarify the question how the Landau conception and stochastic attractor (SA) idea concern the laminar-turbulent transition. It is shown that the transition combines both the Landau and SA hypotheses features. (A)
