## Abstract

We prove that for pairwise co-prime numbers $k_1,\dots,k_d \geq 2$ there does not exist any infinite set of positive integers $\mathcal{A}$ such that the representation function $r_{\mathcal{A}}(n) = \# \{ (a_1, \dots, a_d) {\in} \mathcal{A}^d : k_1 a_1 + \cdots + k_d a_d = n \}$ becomes constant for $n$ large enough. This result is a particular case of our main theorem, which poses a further step towards answering a question of Sárközy and Sós and widely extends a previous result of Cilleruelo and Rué for bivariate linear forms (Bull. of the London Math. Society, 2009).
