From Tom Copeland, Oct 14 2011: (Start)
Given analytic functions F(x) and FI(x) such that F(FI(x))=FI(F(x))=x about 0, i.e., they are compositional inverses of each other, then, with g(x)= 1/dFI(x)/dx, a flow function W(s,x) can be defined with the following relations:
W(s,x)= exp[s g(x)d/dx]x = F[s+FI(x)] <flow fct.>,
W(s,0)= F(s), <orbit of the flow>,
W(0,x)= x <identity property>,
dW(0,x)/ds = g(x) = F'[FI(x)], <infinitesimal generator>, implying
dW(0,F(x))/ds = g(F(x)) = F'[x], <autonomous diff. eqn.>, and
W[s,W(r,x)] = F{s+FI[F[r+FI(x)]]} = F[s+r+FI(x)] = W(s+r,x) <group property>. (See MF link below.) (End)
dW(s,x)/ds  g(x)dW(s,x)/dx = 0, so (1,g(x)) are the components of a vector orthogonal to the gradient of W and, therefore, tangent to the contour of W, at (s,x) <tangency property>.  Tom Copeland, Oct 26 2011
Though A139605 contains A145271, the op. of A145271 contains that of A139605 in the sense that exp[s g(x)d/dx] w(x)= w{F[s+FI(x)]}
= exp{[exp(s g(x)d/dx)x]d/du}w(u) eval. at u=0. This is reflected in the fact that the forest of rooted trees assoc. to (g(x)d/dx)^n, FOR_n, can be generated by removing the single trunk of the planted rooted trees of FOR_(n+1).  Tom Copeland, Nov 29 2011
Related to formal group laws for elliptic curves (see Hoffman).  Tom Copeland, Feb 24 2012
The functional equation W(s,x)=F[s+FI(x)], or a restriction of it, is sometimes called the Abel equation or Abel's functional equation (see Houzel and Wikipedia) and is related to SchrÃ¶der's functional equation and Koenigs functions for compositional iterates (Alexander, Goryainov and Kudryavtseva).

EXAMPLE

Let R = g(x)d/dx; then
R^0 g(x) = 1 (0')^1
R^1 g(x) = 1 (0')^1 (1')^1
R^2 g(x) = 1 (0')^1 (1')^2 + 1 (0')^2 (2')^1
R^3 g(x) = 1 (0')^1 (1')^3 + 4 (0')^2 (1')^1 (2')^1 + 1 (0')^3 (3')^1
R^4 g(x) = 1 (0')^1 (1')^4 + 11 (0')^2 (1')^2 (2')^1 + 4 (0')^3 (2')^2 + 7 (0')^3 (1')^1 (3')^1 + 1 (0')^4 (4')^1
where (j')^k = [(d/dx)^j g(x)]^k. And R^(n1) g(x) evaluated at x=0 is the nth Taylor series coefficient of the compositional inverse of h(x)= (d/dx)^(1) 1/g(x), with the integral from 0 to x.
The partitions are in reverse order to those in Abramowitz and Stegun p. 831. Summing over coefficients with like powers of (0') gives A008292.
