### Abstract

Given a graph G = (V, E) of order n and an n-dimensional non-negative vector d = (d(1), d(2),..., d(n)) called demand vector, the vector domination (resp., total vector domination) is the problem of finding a minimum S ⊆ V such that every vertex v in V \ S (resp., in V) has at least d(v) neighbors in S. The (total) vector domination is a generalization of many dominating set type problems, e.g., the dominating set problem, the k-tuple dominating set problem (this k is different from the solution size), and so on, and subexponential fixed-parameter algorithms with respect to solution size for apex-minor-free graphs (so for planar graphs) are known. In this paper, we consider maximization versions of the problems; that is, for a given integer k, the goal is to find an S ⊆ V with size k that maximizes the total sum of satisfied demands. For these problems, we design subexponential fixed-parameter algorithms with respect to k for apex-minor-free graphs.
