Repolarization of an Actionpotentials

Hi again,

A repolization implies to have a depolarization first?
But I don't know which two biophysical mechanism lie behind
this phenomena? Well, the first could be, because of the
switch between the inactive to the open configuration
of the ion channels?

Is the repolarization important because there can't be
a backward Actionpotential (running to the opposite)?
And also the maximum frequency can be limited dependent
on the actionpotentials, is'nt it?
