Gradient of the quotient of two scalar point functions

Gradient of the quotient of two scalar point functions.

If f and g are two scalar point functions, then

grad (f/g) = ( g grad f - f grad g )/g^2,

that is, gradient of (f/g) = ( g gradient of f - f gradient of g )/g^2,

that is, (f/g) = (g f - f g)/g^2

Gradient of the quotient of two scalar point functions.

If f and g are two scalar point functions, then

grad (f/g) = ( g grad f - f grad g )/g^2,

that is, gradient of (f/g) = ( g gradient of f - f gradient of g )/g^2,

that is, (f/g) = (g f - f g)/g^2
