We present results for existence of global solutions and attractivity for multidimensional fractional differential equations involving Riemann-Liouville derivative. First, by using a Bielecki type norm and the Banach-fixed point theorem, we prove a Picard-Lindelof-type theorem on the existence and uniqueness of solutions. Then, applying the properties of Mittag-Leffler functions, we describe the attractivity of solutions to some classes of Riemann-Liouville linear fractional differential systems.
