Abstract

In this paper, we extend the approach first outlined by Hardy and Ramanujan for calculating the asymptotic formulae for the number of partitions into $r$-th powers of primes, $p_{\mathbb{P}^{(r)}}(n)$, to include their difference functions. In doing so, we rectify an oversight of said authors, namely that the first difference function is perforce positive for all values of $n$, and include the magnitude of the error term.
