A problem in additive number theory

  • Jörg Brüdern (a1)

Extract

The determination of the minimal s such that all large natural numbers n admit a representation as

is an interesting problem in the additive theory of numbers and has a considerable literature, For historical comments the reader is referred to the author's paper [2] where the best currently known result is proved. The purpose here is a further improvement.
