CSES - Tree Diameter
|Time limit:||1.00 s
||Memory limit:||512 MB|
You are given a tree that consists of $n$ nodes.
of a tree is the maximum distance between two nodes. Your task is to determine the diameter of the tree.
The first input line contains an integer $n$: the number of nodes. The nodes are numbered $1,2,\ldots,n$.
Then there are $n-1$ lines that describe the edges. Each line contains two integers $a$ and $b$: there is an edge between nodes $a$ and $b$.
Print one integer: the diameter of the tree.
- $1 \le n \le 5 \cdot 10^5$
- $1 \le a,b \le n$
Explanation: The diameter corresponds to the path $2 \rightarrow 1 \rightarrow 3 \rightarrow 5$.
