The reasons for changes in the type of the recrystallizatioin texture depending on particular annealing conditions of a deformed single crystal (110)[001] are discussed. It is shown that recrystallization centers (210)-(310)[001] can be formed at structural inhomogeneities of different type, such as transition bands, kink bands, and twin boundaries. The development of the texture component (210)-(310)[001] in deformed single crystals subject to slow heating is due mainly to the orientation dependence of the critical dimension of nuclei.
