## Abstract

For a regular coupled cell network, synchrony subspaces are the polydiagonal subspaces that are invariant under the network adjacency matrix. The complete lattice of synchrony subspaces of an n-cell regular network can be seen as an intersection of the partition lattice of n elements and a lattice of invariant subspaces of the associated adjacency matrix. We assign integer tuples with synchrony subspaces and use them for identifying equivalent synchrony subspaces to be merged. Based on this equivalence, the initial lattice of synchrony subspaces can be reduced to a lattice of synchrony subspaces which corresponds to a simple eigenvalue case discussed in our previous work. The result is a reduced lattice of synchrony subspaces, which affords a well-defined nonnegative integer index that leads to bifurcation analysis in regular coupled cell networks.
