Canuto, V., and S.-H. Hsieh, 1978: On the bulk viscosity of relativistic matter. Nuovo Cimento B, 48, 189-198, doi:10.1007/BF02743642.

An expression for the bulk viscosity coefficient in terms of the trace of the hydrodynamic energy-stress tensor is derived from the Kubo formula. This, along with a field-theoretic model of an interacting system of scalar particles, suggests that at high temperatures the bulk viscosity tends to zero, contrary to the often quoted results of Iso, Mori and Namiki.
