Hello everyone, I want to calculate a graph diameter (or the bounds for its value) given a few graph properties such as number of vertices, edges or the max. degree. I'm aware that finding the diameter in a graph involves NP algorithms, but I don't need to find the diameter path, I just need the value of it. Although Moore bound presents some usefull aspects (it is from the "degree diameter problem" and could be adapted to calculate the diameter), as far as I've read, graphs that strictly follows Moore bound are rare. Plus, in my case I work only with biconnected undirected unweighted graphs, which don't seem to be a very popular kind of graph among degree diameter problem researches. My question is: is there an expression (equality or inequality) that relates the diameter to number of vertices or number of edges or max. degree in biconnected undirected unweighted graphs? Or is it an open issue? Thanks in advance!

I think such a closed expression does not exist because there are various different biconnected undirected unweighted graphs with different diameters but with the same number of vertices, edges and max. degree, even. Does that help?

Well, an equation seems unreal, but I was hoping an inequation that gives lower ou upper bounds...
