Progress in applying lattice-gas models to the simulation of colloidal dispersions is described. A new set of collision rules for the four-dimensional face-centered-hypercubic lattice, which lead to an exactly isotropic viscosity and which can be implemented with a small table lookup, have been developed. However, they are only suitable for low Reynolds number flows. A new implementation of a constant-velocity boundary condition for lattice-gas models is described.
