During the last few years, remarkable developments have been made in the theory of the fractional variational principles and their applications to control problems and fractional quantization issue. The variational principles have been used in physics to construct the phase space of a fractional dynamical system. Based on the Caputo derivatives, the fractional dynamics of discrete constrained systems is presented and the notion of the reduced phase space is discussed. Two examples of discrete constrained system are analyzed in detail.
