abstract = "The paper presents the method for direct computation of critical points. A general
algorithm for the quadratically convergent extended system formulation is introduced based on an
arbitrary subset of the diagonal elements of the upper triangular matrix as a critical point test
function. Closedform solutions for all derivatives on an element level were obtained by using
symbolic code generation. An algorithm for the backward automatic differentiation of matrix
decomposition is developed for the linearization of the test function at the global level. The
proposed algorithm is compared with the formulations based on a determinant and a critical diagonal
test function."
