The fractal α-velocity and α-acceleration are defined in order to obtain the Langevin equation on fractal curves. Using the Legendre transformation, Hamilton’s mechanics on fractal curves is derived for modeling a non-conservative system on fractal curves with fractional dimensions. Fractal differential equations have solutions that are non-differentiable in the sense of ordinary derivatives and explain space and time with fractional dimensions. The illustrated examples with graphs present the details.
