Exact closed-form coherent structures (pulses/fronts/domain walls) having the form of complicated traveling waves are constructed for the long-wave (Benjamin-Bona-Mahoney/Modified-Benjamin-Bona-Mahoney/Symmetric Regularized-Long-Wave) equations by the use of invariant Painleve analysis. These analytical solutions, which are derived directly from the underlying PDE's, are investigated in the light of restrictions imposed by the ODE that any traveling wave reduction of the corresponding ODE must satisfy In particular: it is shown that the coherent structures (a) asymptotically satisfy the ODE governing traveling wave reductions, and (b) are accessible to the PDE from compact support initial conditions. The coherent structures are compared with each other, and with other known solutions of these equations.
