The `non_distributed_betweenness_centrality()` function computes the
betweenness centrality of the vertices and edges in a graph. The name
is somewhat confusing, the graph `g` is not a distributed graph,
however the algorithm does run in parallel. Rather than parallelizing
the individual shortest paths calculations that are required by
betweenness centrality, this variant of the algorithm performs the
shortest paths calculations in parallel with each process in `pg`
calculating the shortest path from a different set of source vertices
using the BGL's implementation of Dijkstra shortest paths. Each
process accumulates into it's local centrality map and once all the
shortest paths calculations are performed a reduction is performed to
combine the centrality from all the processes.

<`boost/graph/distributed/betweenness_centrality.hpp`>

- IN:
`const ProcessGroup& pg` - The process group over which the the processes involved in betweenness centrality communicate. The process group type must model the Process Group concept.
- IN:
`const Graph& g` - The graph type must be a model of the Incidence Graph concept.
- IN:
`CentralityMap centrality` A centrality map may be supplied to the algorithm, if one is not supplied a

`dummy_property_map`will be used and no vertex centrality information will be recorded. The key type of the`CentralityMap`must be the graph's vertex descriptor type.**Default**: A`dummy_property_map`.- IN:
`EdgeCentralityMap edge_centrality_map` An edge centrality map may be supplied to the algorithm, if one is not supplied a

`dummy_property_map`will be used and no edge centrality information will be recorded. The key type of the`EdgeCentralityMap`must be the graph's vertex descriptor type.**Default**: A`dummy_property_map`.- IN:
`IncomingMap incoming` The incoming map contains the incoming edges to a vertex that are part of shortest paths to that vertex. Its key type must be the graph's vertex descriptor type and its value type must be the graph's edge descriptor type.

**Default**: An`iterator_property_map`created from a`std::vector`of`std::vector`of the graph's edge descriptor type.

- IN:
`DistanceMap distance` The distance map records the distance to vertices during the shortest paths portion of the algorithm. Its key type must be the graph's vertex descriptor type.

**Default**: An`iterator_property_map`created from a`std::vector`of the value type of the`CentralityMap`.

- IN:
`DependencyMap dependency` The dependency map records the dependency of each vertex during the centrality calculation portion of the algorithm. Its key type must be the graph's vertex descriptor type.

**Default**: An`iterator_property_map`created from a`std::vector`of the value type of the`CentralityMap`.

- IN:
`PathCountMap path_count` The path count map records the number of shortest paths each vertex is on during the centrality calculation portion of the algorithm. Its key type must be the graph's vertex descriptor type.

**Default**: An`iterator_property_map`created from a`std::vector`of the graph's degree size type.

- IN:
`VertexIndexMap vertex_index` A model of Readable Property Map whose key type is the vertex descriptor type of the graph

`g`and whose value type is an integral type. The property map should map from vertices to their (local) indices in the range*[0, num_vertices(g))*.**Default**:`get(vertex_index, g)`- IN:
`WeightMap weight_map` - A model of Readable Property Map whose key type is the edge
descriptor type of the graph
`g`. If not supplied the betweenness centrality calculation will be unweighted. - IN:
`Buffer sources` A model of Buffer containing the starting vertices for the algorithm. If

`sources`is empty a complete betweenness centrality calculation using all vertices in`g`will be performed. The value type of the Buffer must be the graph's vertex descriptor type.**Default**: An empty`boost::queue`of int.

Each of the shortest paths calculations is *O(V log V)* and each of
them may be run in parallel (one per process in `pg`). The
reduction phase to calculate the total centrality at the end of the
shortest paths phase is *O(V log V)*.

The algorithm uses a non-distributed (sequential) graph, as well as
non-distributed property maps. Each process contains a separate copy
of the sequential graph `g`. In order for the algorithm to be
correct, these copies of `g` must be identical. The `sources`
buffer contains the vertices to use as the source of single source
shortest paths calculations when approximating betweenness centrality
using a subset of the vertices in the graph. If `sources` is empty
then a complete betweenness centrality calculation is performed using
all vertices.

In the sequential phase of the algorithm each process computes shortest paths from a subset of the vertices in the graph using the Brandes shortest paths methods from the BGL's betweenness centrality implementation. In the parallel phase of the algorithm a reduction is performed to sum the values computed by each process for all vertices in the graph.

Either weighted or unweighted betweenness centrality is calculated
depending on whether a `WeightMap` is passed.
