The fractional Lagrangian and Hamiltonian dynamics is an important issue in fractional calculus area. The classical dynamics can be reformulated in terms of fractional derivatives. The fractional variational principles produce fractional Euler-Lagrange equations and fractional Hamiltonian equations. The fractional dynamics strongly depends of the fractional integration by parts as well as the non-locality of the fractional derivatives. In this paper we present the fractional Hamilton formulation based on Caputo fractional derivatives. One example is treated in details to show the characteristics of the fractional dynamics.
