Abstract: We introduce a family of Artinian Gorenstein algebras, whose combinatorial structure characterizes the ones presented by quadrics. Under certain hypotheses these algebras have non-unimodal Hilbert vector. In particular we provide families of counterexamples to the conjecture that Artinian Gorenstein algebras presented by quadrics should satisfy the weak Lefschetz property.
