How do we simplify and understand a rigid combinatorial object (a finite, discrete graph) in terms of an infinite-dimensional limiting object (a function)? What types of limiting behaviors should we expect empirically? What types do we need mathematically, to ensure consistent inference (leading to algorithms with provable properties, and hence to defensible data-analytic conclusions)?
