The algorithm for Dissipative Particle Dynamics (DPD), as modified by Español and Warren, is used as a starting point for proving an H-theorem for the free energy and deriving hydrodynamic equations. Equilibrium and transport properties of the DPD fluid are explicitly calculated in terms of the system parameters for the continuous time version of the model.
