  • Fundamentals of Futures and Options Markets - Hull, J.C. (7th edition. Prentice Hall, 2008). -

    Remark: this book is far from beeing the best but it is probably the simplest and the most well-known.

    NB: chapter 11 and 12 of the book of Hull will be part of the program. Students should check before signing the course that this material might be difficult if they are not confortable with mathetical modeling.

  • Derivatives: Sundaram R, Das S, Principles and Practice, Mc Graw Hill. -

    Remark: this book is more advanced than the book of Hull and can be used for this course.
