From Israel-Sterwart(second order) entropy four-current in kinetic theory, we expand it up to third order in dissipative fluxes, the Viscous stress tensor, heat flux and Viscous pressure. We show the temperature behaviour of our coefficients by ploting them as functions of temperature dependent parameter. Finally we will compare our results with those obtained from Israel-Sterwat theory.
