The four statues of Michael the Brave, John Heliade Radulescu, Spiru Haret and Gheorghe Lazar were moved from the University Square because of an underground garage project. They were to be restored to their original places by April 2012.
Spiru C. Haret (15 February 1851 – 17 December 1912) was a Romanian mathematician, astronomer and politician. He made a fundamental contribution to the n-body problem in celestial mechanics by proving that using a third degree approximation for the disturbing forces implies instability of the major axes of the orbits, and by introducing the concept of secular perturbations in relation to this.
