Abstract: For a positive integer $ N$, a set $ \mathcal{A}\subset [0,N]\cap\mathbb{Z}$ is called a $ 2$-basis for $ N$ if every integer $ n\in [0,N]$ can be represented as $ n=a+b$, where $ a, b\in\mathcal{A}$. In this paper, we give a lower bound estimate for the cardinality of an additive $ 2$-basis for $ N$, as $ N\to\infty$, which improves the existing results on this topic.
