What is "Depth of Atomic Objects" ?
Hi, The Mathematica Help in A.1.4 says "Atomic objects in Mathematica are considered to have depth 0 and yield True when tested with AtomQ." For example, numeric 4 is Integer and must be a Atomic object. Then I try the function Depth and AtomQ ; Depth returns depth "1". And AtomQ returns "True". Why can the function Depth return depth "0" ? I wonder if meaning of the function "Depth" differs from the word "depth". But I feel somthing strange. How can I understand this ? thanks.
