In this new work, the free motion of a coupled oscillator is investigated. First, a fully description of the system under study is formulated by considering its classical Lagrangian, and as a result, the classical Euler-Lagrange equations of motion are constructed. After this point, we extend the classical Lagrangian in fractional sense, and thus, the fractional Euler-Lagrange equations of motion are derived. In this new formulation, we consider a recently introduced fractional operator with Mittag-Leffler nonsingular kernel. We also present an efficient numerical method for solving the latter equations in a proper manner. Due to this new powerful technique, we are able to obtain remarkable physical thinks; indeed, we indicate that the complex behavior of many physical systems is realistically demonstrated via the fractional calculus modelling. Finally, we report our numerical findings to verify the theoretical analysis.
