Let K(G) be the clique graph of a graph G. A m-weighting of K(G) consists on giving to each m-size subset of its vertices a weight equal to the size of the intersection of the m corresponding cliques of G. The 2-weighted clique graph was previously considered by McKee. In this work we obtain a characterization of weighted clique graphs similar to Roberts and Spencer´s characterization for clique graphs. Some graph classes can be naturally defined in terms of their weighted clique graphs, for example clique-Helly graphs and their generalizations, and diamond-free graphs. The main contribution of this work is to characterize several graph classes by means of their weighted clique graph: hereditary clique-Helly graphs, split graphs, chordal graphs, UV graphs, interval graphs, proper interval graphs, trees, and block graphs.
