15: 9.16 Physical Applications
A quite different application is made in the study of the diffraction of sound pulses by a circular cylinder (Friedlander (1958)). … In the study of the stability of a two-dimensional viscous fluid, the flow is governed by the Orr–Sommerfeld equation (a fourth-order differential equation). …An application of Airy functions to the solution of this equation is given in Gramtcheff (1981). Airy functions play a prominent role in problems defined by nonlinear wave equations. These first appeared in connection with the equation governing the evolution of long shallow water waves of permanent form, generally called solitons, and are predicted by the Korteweg–de Vries (KdV) equation (a third-order nonlinear partial differential equation). …

20: Mark J. Ablowitz
Ablowitz is an applied mathematician who is interested in solutions of nonlinear wave equations. Certain nonlinear equations are special; e. …ODEs with the Painlevé property contain the well-known Painlevé equations which are special second order scalar equations; their solutions are often called Painlevé transcendents. Some of the relationships between IST and Painlevé equations are discussed in two books: Solitons and the Inverse Scattering Transform and Solitons, Nonlinear Evolution Equations and Inverse Scattering. Widespread interest in Painlevé equations re-emerged in the 1970s and thereafter partially due to the connection with IST and integrable systems. …
