This paper is devoted to the study of certain unimodal sequences
related to binomial coefficients. Although the paramount purpose is to
prove unimodality, in a few cases we even determine the maxima of
the sequences. Our new results generalize some earlier theorems on
unimodality. The proof techniques are quite varied.
