In the paper, we present a method based on eigenvalue criterion to test the asymptotic stability of fractional linear Langevin systems represented by the fractional differential equation in the sense of Caputo fractional derivative. Also, this method is extended to nonlinear equations and finally some sufficient conditions ensuring asymptotical stability of fractional-order nonlinear Langevin systems are proposed. Some numerical examples are provided to illustrate the effectiveness of the proposed method.
