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 f = -0.257772801... and is the greatest root of the equation: 2 + 12d + 18d^2 + 6d^3 = 0. The value of g is given in A199589.
