Dimension reduction of dynamical system is a significant issue for technical applications, as regards both finite dimensional system and infinite dimensional systems emerging from either science or engineering. Center manifold method is one of the main reduction methods for ordinary differential systems (ODSs). Does there exists a similar method for fractional ODSs (FODSs)? In other words, does there exists a method for reducing the high-dimensional FODS into a lower-dimensional FODS? In this study, we establish a local fractional center manifold for a finite dimensional FODS. Several examples are given to illustrate the theoretical analysis.
