See A128081 for central coefficients of q in the q-analog of the odd double factorials. Also, A000140 is the central coefficients of q-factorials, giving the maximum number of permutations on n letters having the same number of inversions.

Table of n, a(n) for n=0..18.

Eric Weisstein's World of Mathematics, q-Factorial from MathWorld.

a(n) is the central term of the q-analog of even double factorials,

in which the coefficients of q (triangle A128084) begin:

n=0: (1);

n=1: (1),1;

n=2: 1,2,(2),2,1;

n=3: 1,3,5,7,(8),8,7,5,3,1;

n=4: 1,4,9,16,24,32,39,44,(46),44,39,32,24,16,9,4,1;

n=5: 1,5,14,30,54,86,125,169,215,259,297,325,(340),340,325,297,...;...

The terms enclosed in parenthesis are initial terms of this sequence.
