Many interesting phenomena occur in macromolecules and material structures that are poised between rigid and flexible. We describe the modern theory of rigidity and show how it can be used to analyze networks of constraints. Examples are given from the jamming of spheres and other shapes, zeolites, protein folding and the newly discovered 2d silicate glasses where an unexpected symmetry emerges from the disorder as a result of self-organization.
