    Multiplicative Differential Equations: Volume I is the first part of a comprehensive approach to the subject. It continues a series of books written by the authors on multiplicative, geometric approaches to key mathematical topics. This volume begins with a basic introduction to multiplicative differential equations and then moves on to first- and second-order equations, as well as the question of existence and uniqueness of solutions. Each chapter ends with a section of practical problems. The book is accessible to graduate students and researchers in mathematics, physics, engineering and biology.

    Svetlin G. Georgiev (born 05 April 1974, Rouse, Bulgaria) is a mathematician who has worked in various areas of mathematics. He currently focuses on harmonic analysis, functional analysis, partial differential equations, ordinary differential equations, Clifford and quaternion analysis, integral equations and dynamic calculus on time scales.

    Khaled Zennir was born in Skikda, Algeria, in 1982. He received his PhD in Mathematics in 2013 from Sidi Bel Abbès University, Algeria (Assist. Professor). He obtained his highest diploma in Algeria (Habilitation, Mathematics) from Constantine University, Algeria, in May 2015 (Assoc. Professor). He is now Associate Professor at Qassim University, KSA. His research interests lie in nonlinear hyperbolic partial differential equations: global existence, blow-up and long time behavior.
