e ^ (-2 ln |x + 1|) = e ^ ln [1 / (x + 1)^2]

how can this happen?
can anyone explain to me the process of this equation..

Nice how you absolutely did not try to hide the fact that you copied this from another forum.

The answer to your question: it is a known calculation rule for logarithms that
y alog(x) = alog(xy)
for any number a.

I haven't see notation like that before. Is alog supposed to represent the log base a of something?

The notation that is used more often for this property of logarithms, I believe, is this:
loga (xy) = y loga(x)
