COMMENTS

A054374 gives the discriminants of the Hermite polynomials in the conventional (physicists') normalization, and A002109 gives the discriminants of the Hermite polynomials in the (in my opinion more natural) probabilists' normalization. See refs Wikipedia and Szego eq. (6.71.7). - Alan Sokal, Mar 02 2012
