```Hello Nathan,

a couple of points.

1) You did not write it, but it seems that you use the igraph package.
It might be worth pointing this out, and also, to post to the
igraph-help mailing list if you don't get any answer here.

2) igraph can easily create graphs from edge lists, there is no need
to construct an adjacency matrix by hand.

3) Only the (not yet released) 0.6 version of igraph supports weighted
betweenness calculation, version 0.5.1 simply ignores the weights.
(And then all betweenness values are zero for your full graph.)

4) You have to call the edge attribute containing the weights 'weight'
(lowercase) or explicitly supply them in the betweenness() call,
otherwise they are ignored.

5. So here is how to do what you want, with igraph 0.6. Suppose you
have the following in the /tmp/test.csv file:
----------------------------------------
Node1,Node2,weight
1,2,5
2,3,30
2,4,30
1,4,5
3,4,30
1,3,2
----------------------------------------
Then the code is:

library(igraph)
g <- graph.data.frame(mat, dir=FALSE)
betweenness(g)

and the result is
3 0 0 0

Best,
Gabor
