A034415 Second term in extremal weight enumerator of doubly-even binary self-dual code of length 24n. 4

The terms become negative at n=154 and so certainly by that point the extremal codes do not exist (see references).

Up to n = 250 the terms steadily increase in magnitude, but their sign changes from positive to negative at n = 154.

At length 24, the weight enumerator (of the Golay code) is 1+759*x^8+2576*x^12+..., with leading coefficient 759 and second term 2576.
