\title{Nesting Depth of a Nested Archimedean Copula ("nacopula")}
\description{
  Compute the nesting depth of a nested Archimedean copula which is the
  length of the longest branch in the tree representation of the copula,
  and hence at least one.
}
\usage{
nesdepth(x)
}
\arguments{
  \item{x}{object of class \code{"\linkS4class{nacopula}"}.}
}
\value{an integer, the nesting depth of the nested Archimedean copula.
  An (unnested) Archimedean copula has depth \code{1}.
}

  \code{\link[=nacopula-class]{dim}} of nacopulas.
