Magnetic resonance measurements of migration and irreversible dynamics in the capillary shear flow of a Brownian suspension are presented. The results demonstrate the presence of phenomena typically associated with concentrated noncolloidal systems and indicate the role of many body hydrodynamics in dilute Brownian suspension transport. The application of concepts from chaos theory and nonequilibrium statistical mechanics is demonstrated.
