Abstract: We continue a series of investigations by A. Balog and two of the authors (P. Erdös and A. Sárközy) on the arithmetic properties of the elements , where , , and "dense sequences."

The present paper transfers the famous Erdös-Kac theorem on the normal distribution of the number of distinct prime factors of integers to such "sum sequences."
