Find the set of optimal pool sizes for Pool-Specific Optimal Dorfman (PSOD) testing.

1 | ```
pool.specific.dorf(p, max.p, se, sp)
``` |

`p` |
a vector of each individual's probability of infection. |

`max.p` |
the maximum allowable pool size. |

`se` |
the sensitivity of the diagnostic test. |

`sp` |
the specificity of the diagnostic test. |

This function finds the set of optimal pool sizes for PSOD testing. PSOD testing uses a greedy algorithm and does not consider all possible sets of pool sizes. See McMahan et al. (2012) for additional details on the implementation of PSOD testing.
