MA1014 – Calculus & Analysis: Lecturing Second Order Linear Differential Equations and Practical Applications


Luthais McCash is an Honorary Industrial Fellow at the Department of Mathematics, University of Leicester. His main area of research is within applied mathematics and mathematical modelling, particularly within industry. His main academic research revolves around Fluid Flow Modelling;  Atmospheric Physics and Navier Stokes Modelling which in today's society is key in preparing for climate change, and understanding problems relating to turbulence.

From an industrial perspective, his current consultancy involves analysis of stochastic problems and providing strategic guidance based on meteorological data. His work seeks to understand random or stochastic processes, with particular reference to predictive and mathematical modelling within the energy sector. He is currently the Lead Scientist at a Scottish energy company, and has a background as an industrial consultant within aviation and energy modelling. He also aims to develop mathematical and computational solutions to industrial problems. He was recognised in industry for developing new mathematical models and methods in machine learning for predictive forecasting.

His interests are broad but generally speaking, they deal with understanding randomness. Current industrial work involves:

  • Fluid Dynamics and Atmospheric Physics / Modelling
  • Artificial Intelligence and Predictive Modelling

His academic research relates broadly to fluid mechanics and applied mathematics in general. Those interested in Luthais' work should email him directly to discuss projects.
