In science:

In the fourth section we explain how the preceding analysis can be bypassed by a direct consideration of the singularity structure of a PDE, by using the method of Weiss, Tabor and Carnevale [100].
Painleve tests, singularity structure and integrability
This approach was pioneered by Weiss, Tabor and Carnevale [100] (hence it is usually referred to as the WTC Painlev´e test).
Painleve tests, singularity structure and integrability
The Weiss-Tabor-Carnevale test is only passed if all resonance conditions are fulfilled for every possible balance in the PDE (i.e. all consistent choices of µ).
Painleve tests, singularity structure and integrability
To see how the Weiss-Tabor-Carnevale test works, we will indicate the first steps of the analysis for the example of the KdV equation (21).
Painleve tests, singularity structure and integrability
Before doing so, we would like to illustrate ways in which the basic Weiss-Tabor-Carnevale test may be further simplified, taking the non-integrable Benjamin-Bona-Mahoney equation (31) as our example.
