%N Leading term in extremal weight enumerator of doubly-even binary self-dual code of length 24n.

%C The term after the leading nonzero term eventually becomes negative and so for large n the extremal codes do not exist (see references, also A034415).

%F a(24n) = C(24n, 5)*C(5n-2, n-1)/C(4n+4, 5).

%e At length 24, the extremal weight enumerator is 1+759*x^8+2576*x^12+..., with leading coefficient 759; this is the weight enumerator of the binary Golay code.
