List of books to be bought for the school on financial mathematics

We want to buy some books on financial mathematics and bring them to Vietnam for the thematic school in Doson (24/Oct-01/Nov/2011).After the school, these books will be donated to a library in Hanoi.

I need  a list of  best books to buy. If you have any suggestion, please let me know by writing a comment to this post. Thank you very much !
