Roughly, “integrating” a partial differential equation means to find a solution for it, usually understood with special properties, such as having prescribed boundary data (initial data), and/or having “closed form”, such as expression by quadratures (“integrable systems”) and/or having prescribed domain (e.g. over infinitesimal neighbourhoods in formal integrability). A PDE is “integrable” in a prescribed sense if it admits solutions in this prescribed sense.
