We show that the lower density of integers representable as a sum of a prime and a power of two is at least 0.107. We also prove that the set of integers with exactly one representation of the form p+2k has positive density. Previous results of this kind needed “at most 15” in place of “exactly one”. To achieve these results we introduce a new method. In particular we make use of uneven distribution of sums of a power of two and a reduced residue class.
