On sums of squares of primes and a k-th power of prime
- 40 Downloads
In this short paper, we consider the exceptional set of integers, not restricted by elementary congruence conditions, which cannot be represented as sums of two squares of primes and a k-th power of prime for any integer \(k \ge 3\). Our results improve the recent results due to Brüdern (in: Sander, Steuding, Steuding (eds) From arithmetic to zeta-functions, Springer, Cham 2016). The similar method can be also applied to some related questions in this direction, and this can improve the previous results.
