I'm looking for bounds on diameter of a given undirected graph with $n$ vertices and $m$ edges? Formally, I look to find $D_{min}$ and $D_{max}$ such that: $D_{min}\leq Diamter\leq D_{max}$ and it is possible to construct a graph (with $n$ vertices and $m$ edges) satisfying the equalities. A trivial bound is $1\leq Diameter\leq n-1$. Thank you.
