# Computes the p-value for LR.suspect

### Description

It is difficult to obtain accurate p-values based on simulation. This function provides an exact alternative.

### Usage

1 | ```
pvalue.machine(LR.suspect, LR.table, P.table)
``` |

### Arguments

`LR.suspect` |
Numeric. Observed likeliood ratio (1x1 positive value) |

`LR.table` |
Pre-computed likelihood ratios for every genotype of every marker (MxG matrix). Each row corresponds to a marker. G is the maximum number of genotypes for any marker. Markers with fewer than G genotypes must have 0 in redundant columns |

`P.table` |
The population probabilities for every genotype of every marker (MxG matrix). Must corresponds to the genotypes in LR.table. See description of LR.table |

### Value

The p-value, where a value close to 0 indicates that the suspect is a contributor.

`dists.product`

and `dists.product.pair`

#Simple example, 2 markers, 3 genotypes. LR's and genotype probabilities precalculated
#The LR's for all possible genotypes for both markers. Each row corresponds to a marker
LR.table <- matrix(c(6,5,5,4,3,2),2,3)
#The population probabilities corresponding to the genotypes in LR.table
P.table <- rbind(c(0.2, 0.4, 0.4), c(0.1,0.6,0.3))
#LR observed for suspect
LR.suspect <- 20
pvalue <- pvalue.machine(LR.suspect, LR.table, P.table)
