Let f(t) = u(t)  u(0) = Sum_{n>=1} u_n * t^n.
If u_1 is not equal to 0, then the compositional inverse for f(t) is given by g(t) = Sum_{j>=1) P(n,t) where, with u_n denoted by (n'),
P(1,t) = (1')^(1) * [ 1 ] * t
P(2,t) = (1')^(3) * [ 2 (2') ] * t^2 / 2!
P(3,t) = (1')^(5) * [ 12 (2')^2  6 (1')(3') ] * t^3 / 3!
P(4,t) = (1')^(7) * [ 120 (2')^3 + 120 (1')(2')(3')  24 (1')^2 (4') ] * t^4 / 4!

A111785 is obtained from A133437 by dividing through the bracketed terms of the P(n,t) by n! and unsigned A111785 is a refinement of A033282 and A126216.  Tom Copeland, Sep 28 2008
For relation to the geometry of associahedra or Stasheff polytopes (and other combinatorial objects) see the Loday and McCammond links. E.g., P(5,t) = (1')^(9) * [ 14 (2')^4  21 (1') (2')^2 (3') + 6 (1')^2 (2') (4')+ 3 (1')^2 (3')^2  1 (1')^3 (5') ] * t^5 is related to the 3D associahedron with 14 vertices (0D faces), 21 edges (1D faces), 6 pentagons (2D faces), 3 rectangles (2D faces), 1 3D polytope (3D faces). Summing over faces of the same dimension gives A033282 or A126216.  Tom Copeland, Sep 29 2008
A relation between this Lagrange inversion for an o.g.f. and partition polynomials formed from the "refined Lah numbers" A130561 is presented in the link "Lagrange a la Lah" along with umbral binary tree representations.
With f(x,t) = x + t*Sum_{n>=2} u_n*x^n, the compositional inverse in x is related to the velocity profile of particles governed by the inviscid Burgers's, or Hopf, eqn. See A001764 and A086810.  Tom Copeland, Feb 15 2014
Newton was aware of this power series expansion for series reversion. See the Ferraro reference p. 75 eqn. 52.  Tom Copeland, Jan 22 2017

FORMULA

The bracketed partitions of P(n,t) are of the form (u_1)^e(1) (u_2)^e(2) ... (u_n)^e(n) with coefficients given by (1)^(n1+e(1)) * [2*(n1)e(1)]! / [ (e(2))! * (e(3))! * ... * (e(n))! ].
From Tom Copeland, Sep 06 2011: (Start)
Let h(t) = 1/(df(t)/dt)
= 1/Ev[u./(1u.t)^2]
= 1/((u_1) + 2*(u_2)*t + 3*(u_3)*t^2 + 4*(u_4)*t^3 + ...),
where Ev denotes umbral evaluation.
Then for the partition polynomials of A133437,
n!*P(n,t) = ((t*h(y)*d/dy)^n) y evaluated at y=0,
and the compositional inverse of f(t) is
g(t) = exp(t*h(y)*d/dy) y evaluated at y=0.
Also, dg(t)/dt = h(g(t)). (End)
From Tom Copeland, Oct 20 2011: (Start)
With exp[x* PS(.,t)] = exp[t*g(x)] = exp[x*h(y)d/dy] exp(t*y) eval. at y=0, the raising/creation and lowering/annihilation operators defined by R PS(n,t)=PS(n+1,t) and L PS(n,t) = n*PS(n1,t) are
R = t*h(d/dt) = t* 1/[(u_1) + 2*(u_2)*d/dt + 3*(u_3)*(d/dt)^2 + ...] and
L = f(d/dt) = (u_1)*d/dt + (u_2)*(d/dt)^2 + (u_3)*(d/dt)^3 + ....
Then P(n,t) = (t^n/n!) dPS(n,z)/dz eval. at z=0. (Cf. A139605, A145271, and link therein to Mathemagical Forests for relation to planted trees on p. 13.) (End)
The bracketed partition polynomials of P(n,t) are also given by (d/dx)^(n1) 1/[u_1 + u_2 * x + u_3 * x^2 + ... + u_n * x^(n1)]^n evaluated at x=0.  Tom Copeland, Jul 07 2015
From Tom Copeland, Sep 20 2016: (Start)
Let PS(n,u1,u2,...,un) = P(n,t) / t^n, i.e., the squarebracketed part of the partition polynomials in the expansion for the inverse in the comment section, with u_k = uk.
Also let PS(n,u1=1,u2,...,un) = PB(n,b1,b2,...,bK,...) where each bK represents the partitions of PS, with u1 = 1, that have K components or blocks, e.g., PS(5,1,u2,...,u5) = PB(5,b1,b2,b3,b4) = b1 + b2 + b3 + b4 with b1 = u5, b2 = 6 u2 u4 + 3 u3^2, b3 = 21 u2^2 u3, and b4 = 14 u2^4.
The relation between solutions of the inviscid Burgers' equation and compositional inverse pairs (cf. A086810) implies that, for n > 2, PB(n, 0 * b1, 1 * b2, ..., (K1) * bK, ...) = [(n+1)/2] * Sum_{k = 2..n1} PS(nk+1,u_1=1,u_2,...,u_(nk+1)) * PS(k,u_1=1,u_2,...,u_k).
For example, PB(5,0 * b1, 1 * b2, 2 * b3, 3 * b4) = 3 * 14 u2^4  2 * 21 u2^2 u3 + 1 * 6 u2 u4 + 1 * 3 u3^2  0 * u5 = 42 u2^4  42 u2^2 u3 + 6 u2 u4 + 3 u3^2 = 3 * [2 * PS(2,1,u2) * PS(4,1,u2,...,u4) + PS(3,1,u2,u3)^2] = 3 * [ 2 * (u2) (5 u2^3 + 5 u2 u3  u4) + (2 u2^2  u3)^2].
Also, PB(n,0*b1,1*b2,...,(K1)*bK,...) = d/dt t^(n2)*PS(n,u1=1/t,u2,...,un)_{t=1} = d/dt (1/t)*PS(n,u1=1,t*u2,...,t*un)_{t=1}.

From Tom Copeland, Sep 22 2016: (Start)
Equivalent matrix computation: Multiply the mth diagonal (with m=1 the index of the main diagonal) of the lower triangular Pascal matrix A007318 by f_m = m!*u_m = (d/dx)^m f(x) evaluated at x=0 to obtain the matrix UP with UP(n,k) = binomial(n,k) f_{n+1k}, or equivalently multiply the diagonals of A132159 by u_m. Then P(n,t) = (1, 0, 0, 0, ...) [UP^(1) * S]^(n1) FC * t^n/n!, where S is the shift matrix A129185, representing differentiation in the basis x^n//n!, and FC is the first column of UP^(1), the inverse matrix of UP. These results follow from A145271 and A133314.
Also, P(n,t) = (1, 0, 0, 0, ...) [UP^(1) * S]^n (0, 1, 0, ...)^T * t^n/n! in agreement with A139605. (End)
A recursion relation for computing each partition polynomial of this entry from the lower order polynomials and the coefficients of the refined Lah polynomials of A130561 is presented in the blog entry "Formal group laws and binomial Sheffer sequences."  Tom Copeland, Feb 06 2018
