Are centrality measures normalised in Mathematica 9? Only ClosenessCentrality is normalised. How I can normalise other centrality measures notably DegreeCentrality and BetweennessCentrality?

g = GridGraph[{5, 5}];
ClosenessCentrality[g] // Short
BetweennessCentrality[g] // Short
DegreeCentrality[g] // Short

{0.24,0.282353,0.3,0.282353,0.24,0.282353<14>>,0.24,0.282353,0.3,0.282353,0.24} {2.6881,17.2071,21.5429,17.2071,<<18>>,21.5429,17.2071,2.6881} {2,3,3,3,2,3,4,4,4,3,3,4,4,4,3,3,4,4,4,3,2,3,3,3,2}

Please give a minimal example of Graph, of DegreeCentrality and the desired output. – Öskå Jun 9 '14 at 18:43
OK @Öskå I give the example of tutorial – Dural Akata Jun 9 '14 at 18:48
How about using Normalize? Or Rescale? – Öskå Jun 9 '14 at 19:26
@DuralAkata Öskå asked you to explain what output you want (desired output), not to post the output that Mathematica produces. In particular, explain what you mean by "normalization" in this context. What you might assume to be a generally known meaning of this term may not actually be standard outside of your field. – Szabolcs Jun 9 '14 at 19:26
In fact in literature we can calculate unnormalised centralities indicators and we can calculate these normalised centralities indicators vary between 0 and 1 and I think in mathematica just ClosenessCentrality is normalised because vary between 0 and 1 – Dural Akata Jun 9 '14 at 23:37
