    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
