Originally, a problem of finding the Diophantine quadruple with a property D(w),or the D(w)--quadruple for short, consisted of deriving a set {[w.sub.1], [w.sub.2], [w.sub.3], [w.sub.4]} of four nonzero integers with the property that [w.sub.i] x [w.sub.j] + w is a perfect square, for i,j [member of] {1, 2, 3,4}, i [not equal to] j,and Diophantus observed that the mentioned set is a D(256) quadruple.
