Diophantine quadruples of numbers whose elements are in proportion

A.M.S. Ramasamy


In this paper certain non-F-type $P_{3,k}$ sequences which contain Diophantine quadruples of numbers in proportion are presented. It is proved that there exist an infinite number of non-F-type $P_{3,k}$ sequences which possess Diophantine quadruples of numbers in proportion.
