    The condition equations are derived by the introduction of a system of equivalent differential equations, avoiding the usual formalism with trees and elementary differentials. Solutions to the condition equations are found by direct optimization, avoiding the necessity to introduce simplifying assumptions upon the Runge-Kutta coefficients. More favourable coefficients, in view of rounding errors, are found.
