How to derive the curl of E equation in the frame of the conductor?

1. Jun 12, 2014

According to wikipedia, "The moving magnet and conductor problem", I stopped at the equation shown in the attachment.
It said that the curl of the E ( electric field in the frame of the conductor) is equal to minus of the dot product of the velocity of the conductor and the del multiplied by the magnetic field.

How to derive this formula?

But i have 3 concerns:
1) The above equation should equal to ∇B(x') ∂vt/∂t not to the composite ∇B(x') ° ∂vt/∂t
2) How (v°∇)B is driven from ∇B(x') ° v?
3) In wikipedia, it is a dot product (v.∇) B not a composite function (v°∇)B

∂B(x)/∂t = ∂B(x+vt)/∂t

∂B/∂t= (∂B/∂x).(∂x/∂t) given that x=x`+vt

but ∂x/∂t= v

so ∂B/∂t= (∂B/∂x). v

Yeah, a dot not a composition. Couldn't find the dot in the menu. Gotta learn LaTex someday I keep saying to myself!
