Review: Let a1 < a2 < ... be an infinite sequence of positive integers and R(n) be the number of solutions of n = ai+aj. It is proved that, roughly speeking, R(n) cannot be approximated well by a monotonic increasing function. The results and proofs are of Erdös-Fuchs type [P. Erdös and W. H. J. Fuchs, J. Lond. Math. Soc. 31, 67-73 (1956; Zbl 070.04104)]. The special case when the approximating function has the shape sumKk = 1ck nrk, 1 > r1 > ... > rk > 0 is due to R. C. Vaughan [J. Number Theory 4, 1-16 (1972; Zbl 226.10058)].
