# diameter.linnet

##### Diameter and Bounding Radius of a Linear Network

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

##### Usage

```
# S3 method for linnet
diameter(x)
```# S3 method for linnet
boundingradius(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 bounding radius 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 `boundingradius`

and
`diameter`

are generic;
the functions `boundingradius.linnet`

and `diameter.linnet`

are the methods for objects of class `linnet`

.

##### Value

A single numeric value.

# NOT RUN {
diameter(simplenet)
boundingradius(simplenet)
# }
```
