COMMENTS

If the side lengths of a quadrilateral form a harmonic progression in the ratio 1 : 1/(1+d) : 1/(1+2d) : 1/(1+3d) where d is the common difference between the denominators of the harmonic progression, then the triangle inequality condition requires that d be in the range f < d < g, where g = 1.1371580... and is the greatest root of the equation: 2 + 6d - 6d^3 = 0. The value of f is given in A199590.
