THEORIES OF REVOLUTION: THE GENERATIONAL DEADLOCK
RADU-ALEXANDRU CUCUTA
Challenges of the Knowledge Society , 2013,
Abstract: The paper attempts to highlight the main characteristics and the main flaws of the most important classification of theories of revolution, the generational approach. The first half aims to discuss and present the main tenets of the most important taxonomy of theories of revolution, as well as the similar attempts made by several scholars to build alternative classifications of theories of revolution. The second part of the paper attempts to show the limits of the aforementioned perspective and the importance of looking for alternative approaches to the study of revolutions. The paper considers that the generational perspective remains impermissibly flexible and elusive, ignoring the main paradigmatic debates within the field of study and maintaining a strong bias in favor of the clearest category, that of structural theories.
THE REVOLUTION AND THE MILITARY. AN ANALYSIS OF THE EGYPTIAN AND IRAQI REVOLUTIONS
Radu-Alexandru CUCUT
Lex et Scientia , 2010,
Abstract: The paper tries to assess the role the military plays in revolutions. The first part of the study focuses on the manner in which the competing theories of revolutions try to explain and accommodate the military’s participation in revolutions, attempting to show that the limits of these theoretical enterprises call for a renewed research into the subject at hand. The second part of the paper tries to build a conceptual model, starting from the hypotheses of Charles Tilly, Samuel Huntington and Mehran Kamrava, tested on two particular cases – that of the 1958 Egyptian Revolution and that of the 1958 Iraqi Revolution that can better account for the military’s participation in revolutions and explain when does the military become a revolutionary force and what are the characteristics of revolutions in which the military plays a key-role.
Alegerile RP i multipartidismul din Romania. O confirmare a teoriei duvergeriene
Alexandru Radu
Sfera Politicii , 2011,
Abstract: This article aims to investigate the relationship between the type of the practiced electoral system and the format of the party system, using the theories voiced by M. Duverger, in order do negate the exceptional character of the postocommunist period in Romania. The analysis leads to the conclusion that, given this perspective, Romania is actually an exemplary case in confirming Duverger’s thesis on the relationship between the proportional electoral system and the multipartyism.
Romanian Local Election Mechanisms. Continuity versus Change
Alexandru Radu
Sfera Politicii , 2012,
Abstract: 2012 election, which took place under exceptional political auspices, is generally considered atypical when compared to the other five post-communist local election cycles, the two reasons for this being the increased citizen ballot presence (caused by the particularity of the election period) and the specific legislature changes. Is such an approach justified? By aiming to investigate the validity of such an approach, we will retrace the history of post-communist Romanian local elections, by looking at the effective political consequences and especially at the dynamics of the electoral formulas that were employed.
Electoral Reform in Romania. An Analytical History (2)
Alexandru Radu
Sfera Politicii , 2012,
Abstract: The paper seeks to retrace the electoral journey of modern Romania, highlighting the general synchronization procces of democratization of the vote, as well as the changes that occured in the practice of parliamentary election patterns. The favored theory suggests that the democratic development of Romania was coincident with the use of PR-type elections. The second segment of the paper examines the evolution of electoral system in the periodes of the comunist majority vote and of the postcomunism PR.

The Entourage Party –a pattern for romanian postcommunist partidism
Alexandru Radu,Daniel Buti
Sfera Politicii , 2012,
Abstract: The phenomenon of Romanian partidism appears not to adhere to already utilizied models in specialized literature, be it either the classic western model or the generic post communist version, in light of its specific characteristics – in particular, its unrelatedness to its social medium. Our theoretical solution is the entourage party, which has the advantages of capturing both the specific character of Romanian political parties, as well as their functional formula, adapted to Romanian postcommunism.
Cryptographic Applications using FPGA Technology
Alexandru Coman,Radu Fratila
Journal of Mobile, Embedded and Distributed Systems , 2011,
Abstract: Cryptographic systems have become a part of our daily life through the need of security of many common activities such as communication, payments, data transfers etc. The best support in design and implementation of cryptographic applications is offered by embedded systems such as ASICs and FPGAs. In the past few years, the increase in performance of FPGAs has made them key components in implementing cryptographic systems. One of the most important parts of the cryptographic systems is the random number generator used. Combinations of PRNG and TRNG are commonly used. A good and efficient TRNG implementation is very important and can be achieved through FPGA technology.
Applications of Fixed Point Theorems in the Theory of Generalized IFS
Mihail Alexandru,Miculescu Radu
Fixed Point Theory and Applications , 2008,
Abstract: We introduce the notion of a generalized iterated function system (GIFS), which is a finite family of functions , where is a metric space and . In case that is a compact metric space and the functions are contractions, using some fixed point theorems for contractions from to , we prove the existence of the attractor of such a GIFS and its continuous dependence in the 's.
