The problem of covering a circle, a square or a regular triangle with \documentclass{aastex} \usepackage{amsbsy} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{bm} \usepackage{mathrsfs} \usepackage{pifont} \usepackage{stmaryrd} \usepackage{textcomp} \usepackage{upgreek} \usepackage{portland,xspace} \usepackage{amsmath,amsxtra} \pagestyle{empty} \DeclareMathSizes{10}{9}{7}{6} \begin{document} $n$ \end{document} congruent circles of minimum diameter (the {\it circle covering} problem) has been investigated by a number of authors and the smallest diameter has been found for several values of \documentclass{aastex} \usepackage{amsbsy} \usepackage{amsfonts} \usepackage{amssymb} \usepackage{bm} \usepackage{mathrsfs} \usepackage{pifont} \usepackage{stmaryrd} \usepackage{textcomp} \usepackage{upgreek} \usepackage{portland,xspace} \usepackage{amsmath,amsxtra} \pagestyle{empty} \DeclareMathSizes{10}{9}{7}{6} \begin{document} $n$ \end{document}. This paper is devoted to the study of an analogous problem, the {\it diameter covering} problem, in which the shape and congruence of the covering pieces is relaxed and -- invariably -- the maximal diameter of the pieces is minimized. All cases are considered when the solution of the first problem is known and in all but one case the diameter covering problem is solved.
