Abstract: A method is given by which one may associate (uniquely) certain differential equations with analytic functions defined by certain Euler product expressions. Some of the consequences of this construction include results relating the location of the zeros of the analytic functions to asymptotic properties of the solutions of the differential equations, as well as a differential equation characterization of those Dirichlet series with multiplicative coefficients.
