##### Circumradius and Diameter of a Linear Network

Compute the circumradius or diameter of a linear network measured using the shortest path distance.

##### Usage

```
circumradius(x)
## S3 method for class 'linnet':
diameter(x)
```

##### Arguments

- x
- Linear network (object of class
`"linnet"`

).

##### Details

The diameter of a linear network (in the shortest path distance) is the maximum value of the shortest-path distance between any two points $u$ and $v$ on the network.

The circumradius of a linear network (in the shortest path distance)
is the minimum value, over all points $u$ on the network,
of the maximum shortest-path distance from $u$ to another point
$v$ on the network.
The function `diameter`

is generic; the function
`diameter.linnet`

is the method for objects of class `linnet`

.

##### Value

- A single numeric value.

##### Examples

```
data(simplenet)
diameter(simplenet)
circumradius(simplenet)
```
