Riemann-Liouville and Caputo fractional derivatives are fundamentally related to fractional integration operators. Consequently, the initial conditions of fractional derivatives are the frequency distributed and infinite dimensional state vector of fractional integrators. The paper is dedicated to the estimation of these initial conditions and to the validation of the initialization problem based on this distributed state vector. Numerical simulations applied to Riemann-Liouville and Caputo derivatives demonstrate that the initial conditions problem can be solved thanks to the estimation of the initial state vector of the fractional integrator.
