How does the quaternion derivative work in the presence of a quaternion product.(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

More specifically, does the standard product rule apply for quaternion derivatives?

Say, I have a function f(q) = q* x a x q [where q -> quaternion, a -> const vector x-> quat prod]

what is the result of the operation d[f(q)] / dq ?
