This function calculates the maximal width *maxWidth(T)* for a
given rooted tree *T*. The tree must not necessarily be binary.
*maxWidth(T)* is defined as

*maxWidth(T)=max_{i=0,...,h(T)} w(i)*

in which *h(T)* denotes the height of the tree *T* and *w(i)* denotes
the number of vertices in *T* that have depth *i*. The maximal width
is a balance index.
