Many interesting phenomena occur in atomic structures that are poised in a region between rigid and flexible. In this talk, we describe the modern theory of rigidity and show how it can be used to analyze networks of constraints. These results can be used as input to geometrical simulation, where the various rigid parts of a system are moved, while maintaining all the constraints; both equalities and inequalities. Examples of this approach are given from zeolites, manganites and proteins (including folding an ancient protein).
