This paper is concerned with rank analysis of rectangular matrix of a homogeneous set of incremental equations regarded as an element of continuation method. The rank analysis is based on a known feature that every rectangular matrix can be transformed into the matrix of echelon form. By inspection of the rank, correct control parameters are chosen and this allows not only for rounding limit and turning points but also for branch‐switching near bifurcation points.
