Why is there a connection between enumerative geometry and nonlinear waves?
Also see "Bernoulli numbers and solitons" by G Rzadkowski tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1142/S1402925110000635 The connections of the Bernoulli numbers to topology are wellknown.

Hirzebruch's motivation of the Todd class
@John McKay, don't know if you ever followed up on it, but there are connections to the BoseEinstein distribution. See OEISA131758 and use find, or search OEIS for Copeland BoseEinstein.

@Eric, to see the explicit connections of the analyses below to your comment about formal group laws and Hausdorff's result you refer to take a look at my answer to the MOQ I link to in my question and my comment to Stephan's answer there.

Hirzebruch's motivation of the Todd class
For the general theory of Hirzebruch, the Lagrange inversion can be extended to formal power series, and, when expressed as such in the indeterminates, the fascinating connections to myriad combinatorial structures are revealed and the general interplay between number theory and topology, as Hirzebruch encourages us to explore as he reminisces. The analytic inverse function theorem then serves as a guide to even more interesting vistas.

Hirzebruch's motivation of the Todd class
Insisting in too much rigour leads to a neglect of the inversion formula as a tool for relating formal power series to each other and the connections to Hirzebruch's general theory on genera.

Define the Bernoulli polynomials as the Appell sequence, i.e., $(B.(0)+x)^n=B_n(x)$, such that $f(B.(x+1))f(B.(x))={f}'(x)$ when convergent. Then $e^{B.(x+1)t}e^{B(x)t}=te^{xt}$ implies $e^{B.(x)t}(e^t1)=te^{xt}$ and the e.g.f. and makes the appearance of $t$ natural. Relates the Bernoulli polynoms to the tangent space.

Jonah Sinick has some interesting notes on the formula in mathisbeauty.org/ZetaValuesinGeometryandTopology1016.pdf .

Hausdorff (1906) via Iserles, "Expansions that grow on trees": Matrix diff. eqn. ${Y}'= A(t)\; Y$ with change of variables $Y(t)=e^{\Omega(t)}$ becomes ${\Omega}'=exp[B.\;ad_{\Omega}]A=\frac{ad_{\Omega}}{e^{ad_{\Omega}1}}A\;.$ citeseerx.ist.psu.edu/viewdoc/…

For the HarerZagier formula the Bernoulli numbers weasel their way in through an asymptotic expansion of the digamma fct. See last page of ocw.mit.edu/courses/mathematics/… .

For notes on Blissard's characterization of $((e^x1)/x)^{m}$, see "Umbral presentations of polynomial sequences" by B. D. Taylor arxiv.org/abs/math/9908131 .

There's a fascinating connection between the Bernoulli polynomials and hyperfunctions in "Hyperfunctions, formal groups, and generalied Litschitz summation formulas" by S. Marmi and P. Tempesta: homepage.sns.it/marmi/papers/… . For more on generalized Bernoulli polynomials, cohomology, and homology, and connections to umbral calculus, see papers by Nigel Ray and collaborators.
