A maximum-clique transversal set of a graph 𝐺 is a subset of vertices intersecting all maximum cliques of 𝐺. The maximum-clique transversal set problem is to find a maximum-clique transversal set of 𝐺 of minimum cardinality. Motivated by the placement of transmitters for cellular telephones, Chang, Kloks, and Lee introduced the concept of maximum-clique transversal sets on graphs in 2001. In this paper, we study the weighted version of the maximum-clique transversal set problem for split graphs, balanced graphs, strongly chordal graph, Helly circular-arc graphs, comparability graphs, distance-hereditary graphs, and graphs of bounded treewidth.
