I've been trying to work out some expressions involving commutators of vector operators, and I am hoping some of y'all might know some identities that might make my job a little easier.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

Specifically, what is [itex]\left[\mathbf{\hat A}\cdot\mathbf{\hat B}, \mathbf{\hat C}\right][/itex]? Are there any useful identities to express this in terms of simpler commutators?

Any help is appreciated.
