This function gives the probability of observing the ith nearest neighbour at distance c given the previous 4 nearest neighbour distances, $P(d_i >= x | d_(i-1), d_(i-2), d_(i-3), d_(i-4))$

`i` |
numeric, which nearest neighbour to consider |

`c` |
vector, the distance at which the ith NN was observed |

`a` |
vector, the distance at which the (i-1)th NN was observed, a <= c |

`k1` |
vector, number of previous neighbhour at distance d_i |

`k2` |
vector, number of preivous neighbhours at distance d_(i-1) |

`N` |
numeric, size of the dataset |

The probability is calculated by ranking the data and assuming that the data lie on a torus. For details see Dümcke et al. "A novel test for independence derived from an exact distribution of ith nearest neighbours" (PLoS ONE 2014)
