I am looking for a good reference for Monte Carlo simulation applied to derivatives with Python. Most books I found until now deal with C++... I have found "Derivatives Analytics with Python" by Yves Hilpisch, has anyone already read it or has a good reference to suggest?

Thanks a lot!

  • $\begingroup$ Maybe there's not any books on it because Python is not really recommended for Monte Carlo? MC is time consuming and Python is slow $\endgroup$

I really liked another book from Yves Hilpisch

Python for Finance by Yves Hilpisch

There are several chapters where he goes through the development of a pricing library.
