This thesis is an examination of infinitesimal rigidity in generic
structures using linear algebra and matroid theory techniques. The
structures examined are bar and joint structures in 1, 2 and 3 dimensions,
and hinged panel structures. The focus of this work is a conjectured
environment for higher dimensional analogues of Laman's theorem, and
some light is consequently shed on the quest for a combinatorial
characterisation of (generic) rigid bar and joint structures in three
