Prof. Rajeev recommends reading the review article "Stochastic Problems in Physics and Astronomy" by S. Chandrashekhar in Reviews of Modern Physics (Volume 15, Page 1, 1943) if the textbook appears too elementary. If you're not on campus, you can read a cached copy of the paper. The paper is 89 pages long and the PDF file is eleven megabytes.
