The author states in this talk the main result of her thesis (Universitat de Barcelona, 1985). Proofs are only sketched. For the complete results see [Acta Arith. 51, No. 2, 131–140 (1988; Zbl 0663.10050)] and J. Number Theory 27, 273–284 (1987; Zbl 0623.10035). A misprint in Theorem 4 should be corrected: The integer \(n=n_0\) must be replaced by \(n=n_0s^2\).
