##### Diameter of a Window Frame

Computes the diameter of a window

- Keywords
- spatial

##### Usage

`diameter(w)`

##### Arguments

- w
- A window, whose diameter will be computed.

##### Details

It is intended that this function compute the diameter of a window of arbitrary shape, i.e. the maximum distance between any two points in the window. The current implementation just computes the length of the diagonal of the rectangular frame surrounding the window.

The argument `w`

should be a window (an object of class
`"owin"`

, see `owin.object`

for details)
or can be given in any format acceptable to `as.owin()`

.

##### Value

- The numerical value of the diameter of the window.

##### Examples

```
library(spatstat)
w <- owin(c(0,1),c(0,1))
diameter(w)
# returns sqrt(2)
```
