Abstract: We first give a new proof and also a new formulation for the Abhyankar-Gurjar inversion formula for formal maps of affine spaces. We then use the reformulated Abhyankar-Gurjar formula to give a more straightforward proof for the equivalence of the Jacobian conjecture with a special case of the vanishing conjecture of (homogeneous) quadratic differential operators with constant coefficients.
