```It might be noted that these sequences are all unimodal
and that (1+x)(1+x^2)(1+x^3)...(1+x^n) is the rank
generating function of the poset M(n), well loved
by algebraic combinatorists.  See, e.g.,

Robert A. Proctor,
Solution of two difficult combinatorial problems
with linear algebra, American Mathematical Monthly,
1989, 721-734.

The middle (and largest coefficients) are A025591.
should be attached to the J. Int. Sequences rather than
the paper titles.)

The number of times the largest coefficient occurs
is A070937.  A table containing the A034140 - A034150
numbers as rows is A053632 (to bad it can't be
viewed as a table!).

Cheers,
Frank
