To find the arc length of the parametric curve ( (e^{-2t} - t^2, t - \frac{t}{e^{t-1}}) ) on the interval ([-1, 1]), we use the formula:

[ L = \int_{a}^{b} \sqrt{\left(\frac{dx}{dt}\right)^2 + \left(\frac{dy}{dt}\right)^2} dt ]

Where ( \frac{dx}{dt} ) and ( \frac{dy}{dt} ) are the derivatives of the parametric equations with respect to ( t ).

- Compute ( \frac{dx}{dt} = \frac{d(e^{-2t} - t^2)}{dt} ) and ( \frac{dy}{dt} = \frac{d(t - \frac{t}{e^{t-1}})}{dt} ).
- Substitute these derivatives into the formula.
- Integrate the resulting expression over the given interval ([-1, 1]).

After integrating, you'll have the arc length of the curve on the specified interval.
