Though it assumes jump-diffusion process for the returns it is straightforward to obtain the scheme for a diffusion process. Also Paul Glasserman's [book][2] [2]: ...

Probably a more common reference is the two-volume set: Shreve - Stochastic Calculus for Finance I & II The first part deals with the binomial ...
