Compositional Inverse Pairs, the Inviscid Burgers-Hopf Equation, and the Stasheff Associahedra

Compositional Inverse Pairs, the Inviscid Burgers-Hopf Equation, and the Stasheff Associahedra: A brief note (pdf) on some relations among these topics, including the Catalan and Fuss-Catalan numbers. References are provided linking the analysis with the distribution of eigenvalues of random matrices, the Wigner semicircle law, and moduli spaces for marked Riemann surfaces.
