The Times Higher Education Supplement
This is probably one of the best books to begin learning about the sometimes complex topic of stochastic calculus and stochastic processes from a more mathematical approach. Some literature are often accused of unnecessarily complicating the subject when applied to areas of finance. With this book you are allowed to explore the rigorous side of stochastic calculus, yet maintain a physical insight of what is going on. The authors have concentrated on the most important and useful topics that are encountered in common physical and financial systems

With clear explanations, and with lots of examples and illustrations!
A useful first book, before turning to more specialized presentations!
While the subject has a long history and a multitude of applications, there is more recent buzz: It has been suggested that the recent turmoil in financial markets may be caused in part by poor understanding on the part of traders of the mathematical models for derivative trading.
The mathematical tools are widely used, but probably a lot less widely understood!
A bit of history: Stochastic processes is a theory started more than a hundred years ago (1900, Louis Bachlier, a Paris-PhD thesis under Poincare), then Albert Einstein's 1905 discovery of Brownian motion, Norbert Wiener's path-space integral (the 1920ties), K. Ito's integral & formula (the 1940ties) and Paul Samuelson-Merton-Black-Scholes 1974, a stochastic differential equation for option pricing: All mathematical tools devised for the purpose of predicting uncertain outcomes in the world around us: in financial engineering; in physics (quantum mechanics, diffusion & thermodynamics); in biology, and in other parts of our experience.
