In this survey chapter we give an overview of recent applications of the splitting method to stochastic (partial) differential equations, that is, differential equations that evolve under the influence of noise. We discuss weak and strong approximations schemes. The applications range from the management of risk, financial engineering, optimal control and nonlinear filtering to the viscosity theory of nonlinear SPDEs.
