## Abstract

Estimates are established for the number of integers of size N, in intervals of size N-theta, that fail to admit a representation as the sum of s cubes (s = 5, 6). Thereby it is shown that almost all such integers are represented in the proposed manner. When s = 5 one may take theta = 10/21, and when s = 6 one may take any theta > 17/63. Similar such conclusions are also established for the related problem associated with the expected asymptotic formula.
