Sorry for the delay in responding.  I think that you can attack your problem
by applying the markcorr() function and/or the smooth.ppp() function (or its
specialized version markmean()).

You could then assess the randomness of the diameters in your data set
by using the envelope() function.  To apply envelope() make use of the
"simulate" argument so as to base the comparison on patterns generated
by randomly permuting the marks of the observed pattern.  Use the function

Let me know if you need more detail.
