```Hi Mathematica community,
For this system:
Reduce[v/d^(i/-2) == vP/d^(iP/-2) &&
(iP == -1 || iP == 0), {iP, vP}, Reals, Backsubstitution -> True]

the output is:
(iP == 0 && C[1] \[Element] Integers && d < 0 && i == -2 C[1] &&
vP == (-d)^-C[1] v)
||
(iP == 0 && C[1] \[Element] Integers &&
C[1] <= -1 && d < 0 && i == -2 C[1] &&
vP == (-d)^-C[1] v)
||
(iP == 0 && C[1] \[Element] Integers &&
d < 0 && i == -2 C[1] && vP == -(-d)^-C[1] v)
||
(iP == 0 &&
C[1] \[Element] Integers && C[1] <= -1 && d < 0 && i == -2 C[1] &&
vP == -(-d)^-C[1] v)
||
(d > 0 && iP == 0 &&
vP == d^(i/2) v)
||
(d > 0 && iP == -1 && vP == d^(1/2 + i/2) v)

1)Why Reduce generates parameters for this example?
2) and how to avoid them knowing that for this system the solution
that I hope to get is
( iP == 0 && vP == d^(i/2) v)
||
( iP == -1 && vP == d^(1/2 + i/2) v)

Thank you.
