The path integral over reparametrization modes in one dimension played an important role in the duality between JT gravity and the SYK model. In this talk, I will explain that the reparametrization modes are important also in certain computations involving the string worldsheet with boundaries. A few cases in which it is expected to play a crucial role are the Wilson loop expectation value in confining string, open strings with massive endpoints, and the string dual to the half-BPS Wilson loop in N=4 supersymmetric Yang-Mills. After reviewing these cases briefly, I will focus on the last case and explain how to compute the correlation function on the BPS Wilson loop from the string worldsheet in the conformal gauge. In particular, I will show that the inclusion of the reparametrization modes is crucial for reproducing the answer obtained previously in the static gauge. I will then use the reparametrization mode path integral to study the four-point functions in the out-of-time-ordered configuration and obtain an exact answer in a double-scaling regime interpolating between the Lyapunov regime and the late-time exponential decay. Interestingly the result has exactly the same functional form as in JT gravity although the actions for the reparametrization modes are different.
