The spectral properties of stationary adic transformations are studied. Sufficient conditions for existence and nonexistence of nonconstant eigenvectors are given. A sufficient condition for a purely discrete spectrum is applied to a series of examples. Using the results of Livshits on equivalence of substitutional flows and adic transformations the main Theorem 4.1 asserts: The minimal flow generated by the substitution on \(\{1,\dots,m\}\) with \(1\to 123\cdots m\), \(i\to i-1\) \((i>1)\), is metrically isomorphic to a translation on the \((m-1)\)- dimensional torus.
