A nonequilibrium thermodynamic theory known as extended irreversible thermodynamics is used to obtain the frequency- and wave vector-dependent generalized viscosity for dilute suspensions. Comparison with a microhydrodynamical calculation by Bedeaux, Kapral, and Mazur allows one to obtain explicit expressions for the coefficients appearing in the macroscopic generalized viscosity. © 1988 American Institute of Physics.
