Smoothed dissipative particle dynamics (SDPD) is a novel coarse grained method for the numerical simulation of complex fluids. It has considerable advantages over more traditional particle-based methods. In this paper we analyze the self-diffusion coefficient of a SDPD solvent by using the strategy proposed by Groot and Warren [J. Chem. Phys.107, 4423 (1997)]. An analytical expression for in terms of the model parameters is developed and verified by numerical simulations.
