In philosophy, empiricism is a theory that states that knowledge comes only or primarily from sensory experience. It is one of several views of epistemology, along with rationalism and cism emphasises the role of empirical evidence in the formation of ideas, rather than innate ideas or traditions. Recently, there have been increased efforts to advocate for . Another great book is "Optimal control theory: An introduction to the theory and its applications" by Peter Falb and Michael Athans, also published by Dover. Also, I would recommend looking at the videos of the edX course "Underactuated Robotics", taught by professor Russ Tedrake of MIT.

Hanin Elaborates the IZOF theory Relationship between emotions and optimal performance There is not a general rule between anxiety and performance The question was: The uttermost satisfaction at the end of a successful competition low "How this elevated anxiety would affect the. This new, updated edition of Optimal Control reflects major changes that have occurred in the field in recent years and presents, in a clear and direct way, the fundamentals of optimal control theory. It covers the major topics involving measurement, principles of optimality, dynamic programming, variational methods, Kalman filtering, and other solution techniques.5/5(1).

Get this from a library. An empirical examination of the zone of optimal functioning theory. [Stephen Scallen]. An Exploratory Examination of the Zone of Optimal Functioning Hypothesis Sherilee Randle and Robert Weinberg Miami University The purpose of the present investigation was to empirically examine Hanin's () Zone of Optimal Functioning (ZOF) hypothesis using a multidimen- sional anxiety approach.

The most popular account for the relationship between arousal and performance is the model of Individual Zones of Optimal Functioning (Hanin,).

IZOF proposes that there are individual differences in the way people react to anxiety. Some tend to succeed when anxiety is low while others tend to succeed when anxiety is high. Optimal functioning is an area of study that focuses on understanding how individuals become the best that they can be as well as how they may achieve their personal potentials.

Greenberg. Hanin is one of the original sport psychologists that researched a positive link between anxiety and sport performance.

Hanin's theory is called the IZOF(Individual Zone of Optimum Functioning) this theory is how anxiety can positively affect a sport performance Hanin came up with three examples of an athlete that are affected within different band widths of anxiety.

The findings provide fairly good empirical support for the IZOF anxiety model, with an overall effect size (d) for the in-out of the zone notion of d = + (41 effect sizes, n = ). In other words,the performance of athletes who were within their individually optimal zones were almost one-half a standard deviation unit better than that of.

A growing number of studies have recently addressed this matter from alternative theoretical standpoints, such as the multidimensional anxiety theory (Martens, Burton, Vealey, Bump, & Smith, ), the catastrophe theory (Hardy,), the reversal theory (Kerr, ), and the Individual Zone of Optimal Functioning (IZOF) model (Hanin,).
