A remark on Hofmann and Wolke's additive decompositions of the set of primes

    Research output: Contribution to journalArticleResearchpeer-review

    Abstract

    We improve upon Hofmann and Wolke's bounds on the conceivable additive decompositions of the set of primes. We also prove that there cannot be a decomposition, where one set is a shifted copy of the other. This answers an open question of Hofmann and Wolke.
