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

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

Keywords
spatial, math
##### Usage
## S3 method for class 'linnet':

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

##### Arguments
x
Linear network (object of class "linnet").

Ignored.
##### 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 functions circumradius and diameter are generic; the functions circumradius.linnet and diameter.linnet are the methods for objects of class linnet.

##### Value

• A single numeric value.
