The number of powers of 2 in a representation of large even integers. I. (English) Zbl 1029.11049

Summary: Under the generalized Riemann hypothesis, it is proved that for any integer \(k\geq 770\) there is \(N_k> 0\) depending on \(k\) only such that every even integer \(\geq N_k\) is a sum of two odd prime numbers and \(k\) powers of 2.
