How to left aligned the title, authors and their description:

    A little more detail would be helpful. I see Elsevier in the corner, so why not ask them if you're submitting a paper with them? If not, are you just interested in duplicating this output in (say) article?

    The class elsarticle (if that is what you are using) has different formats for the title depending on what your class options are. Changing only the alignment of the title for all possibilities would be a bit complex, so it would help to see your \documentclass command at least.

I suppose you can always format something visually.

enter image description here

Unified solution for the Legendre equation in the interval $[-1,1]$---An 
example of solving singular-ordinary differential equations\\[2ex]
Quing-Hua Zhang\textsuperscript{a}, Jian Ma\textsuperscript{b,\textasteriskcentered}, 
Yuanyuan Qu\textsuperscript{a}\\[1ex]
\textsuperscript{a}\emph{The First Institute of Oceanography, \dots}\\
\textsuperscript{b}\emph{College of Marine Sciences, \dots}

As Dan said in the comments, you just need to set the correct option in \documentclass, e.g.:

\documentclass[preprint, 5p, lefttitle]{elsarticle}

The full list of options is available at elsevier guide.
