Schrodinger, your math isn't quite right. I would agree that that adding a partner more than doubles your issues. By your formula moving from single to just one partner would only double the number of issues. You should make n=2 a special case and apply 2^n1 to n>2.
I wonder what happens when you add imaginary partners. Are they represented by i/
You would start having trigonometric issues.
If you haven't guessed I'm a math geek.
