Generalized entropy and transport coefficients of hadronic matter

  • A. MurongaEmail author


We use the generalized entropy four-current of the Müller-Israel-Stewart (MIS) theories of relativistic dissipative fluids to obtain information about fluctuations around equilibrium states. This allows one to compute the non-classical coefficients of the entropy 4-flux in terms of the equilibrium distribution functions. The Green-Kubo formulae are used to compute the standard transport coefficients from the fluctuations of entropy due to dissipative fluxes.
