: Received: 18 November 2017 / Approved: 20 November 2017 / Online: 20 November 2017 (07:20:26 CET)
In the paper, by the Faά di Bruno formula, several identities for the Bell polynomials of the second kind, and an inversion theorem, the authors simplify coefficients of two families of nonlinear ordinary differential equations for the generating function of the Catalan numbers and discover inverses of fifteen closely related lower triangular integer matrices.
