Skew symmetry property

The three types of derivatives: vectors-by-matrices, matrices-by-vectors, and matrices-by-matrices. These are not as widely considered and a notation is not widely agreed upon. However the second type (matrices-by-vectors) is widely used in Robotics. If we consider the following state form for a robot:     The matrix is skew-symmetric.Here the matrix-by-vector derivative...
