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

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

Keywords
spatial, math
##### 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.

boundingradius, diameter, linnet
