The purpose of this paper is to study the fuzzy fractional differential
equations. We prove that fuzzy fractional differential equation is
equivalent to the fuzzy integral equation and then using this equivalence
existence and uniqueness result is establish. Fuzzy derivative is consider
in the Goetschel-Voxman sense and fractional derivative is consider in the
Riemann Liouville sense. At the end, we give the applications of the main
