We consider, from the point of view of operator theory, a class of infinite matrices in which the matrix entries are determined by an underlying graph structure with accompanying geometric data. This class includes the rigidity matrices of infinite bar-joint frameworks as well as the incidence matrices of infinite directed graphs. We consider the following questions: When do these matrices give rise to bounded operators? Can we compute the operator norm? When are these operators compact? And when are they bounded below?
