What is Inverted U theory?

Is the drive theory and you theory the same?
If by which you mean the Inverted-U Theory then no they are not. The drive theory suggests the relationship between arousal and performance to be linear, suggesting that as arousal increases as does performance. This has been rejected by most phychologists and adopted the Inverted-U Hypothesis. The Inverted-U hypothesis suggests that though there is a link between arousal and performance it is not linear, more likely an upwards parabola, or an upside-down or 'inverted' U. This suggests that as arousal increases so does performance but only to an optimal point, after which it begins to deteriorate.

Definition of arousal in sports?
This is the stimulating of the senses before or during a sporting event which can have positive or negative effects on your sporting performance , This can be analysed by : Drive theory - This is linear and never reduces performance Inverted U theory - This states too much arousal reduces performance and it is a steady decrease Catastrophe theory - This is the same as inverted u theory but rather than steady drop it is a steep drop straight down but later does improve performance again.

De Morgan's first theorem and second theorem?
De Morgan's first theory is that the NAND gates stay on the left with the two points, while the right side has inverted inputs on the OR gate to create the Bubbled OR. The second theory has a NOR gate on the left side with the two points and the right side with an AND gate that has inverted inputs to create a Bubbled AND.
Inverted U theory?
Yerkes and Dodson (1908) At low levels of arousal, performance will be below par, the athlete is not psyched up. As arousal increases so does performance, up to an optimal point. After this point, further increases in arousal lead to declines in performance. Each athlete has their own optimal level of arousal. Optimal arousal is higher for more simple tasks and lower for more complex tasks. Problems with inverted 'U' Theory * Critics question if optimal arousal always occurs at the mid-point of the curve. * One curve does not explain the different optimal levels of arousal needed for simple and complex tasks.
