Chapter 39-Perrin Numbers, a Hypergeometric equation and Convolution Sequences

This chalkboard discusses the previously derived hypergeometric equation for calculating Perrin numbers.  The equation is also found to calculate the number of k-th order maximal independent sets in a cycle graph.  Convolution sequences are found to be related to the k-th order numbers and to two combinatorial numbers.
