His main research fields are economics and finance (econophysics), nonlinear dynamics, and statistical physics. He has also published papers on the theory of superfluids, quantum theory of vortices, cosmology, porous media, critical phenomena, and science wars.
McCauley predicted a Dollar crisis in April, 2007, this is described in chapter 9 of his 2009 book Dynamics of Markets. Once an avid and successful outboard racer, he has returned to theoretical hydrodynamics and studies surface-piercing propellers, both in theory and in practice. He intends that his next and probably last book will be on that subject.
McCauley has written four books published by Cambridge University Press:
- Chaos, Dynamics, and Fractals: An Algorithmic Approach to Deterministic Chaos (1993). ISBN 0-521-46747-0
- Classical Mechanics: Transformations, Flows, Integrable and Chaotic Dynamics (1997) . ISBN 0-521-57882-5
- Dynamics of Markets: Econophysics and Finance (2004). ISBN 0-521-03628-3
- Dynamics of Markets: the new financial economics (2009).
- Stochastic Calculus and Differential Equations for Physics and Finance" (2013).
