I am working on Spatial correlation on the location of states of India. I have a problem with Moran.test command. In that, it has an object "listw". I have decided the weights as

1 if state i&j share their boundary
0 otherwise.

How can I convert this matrix in listw form?

Secondly, you can read more about Spatial Correlation using the websites listed through Google Search. It's a pretty complex operation what you're asking, but the websites should offer enough information.
