It is shown that the classical entropy of an isolated system does not increase monotonically when the approach to equilibrium is described by hyperbolic equations for the temperature evolution. In contrast, the generalized entropy of extended irreversible thermodynamics does increase monotonically, and is therefore better suited than the classical theory for the description of hyperbolic heat transport. © 1993 The American Physical Society.
