created worldline formalism to go with this Physics.SE answer
added a little more to worldline formalism.
In particular I added mentioning of this old but curious fact, which I only just learned of from looking again at the review Schubert 96:
In (Metsaev-Tseytlin 88) the 1-loop beta function for pure Yang-Mills theory was obtained as the point-particle limit of the partition function of a bosonic open string in a Yang-Mills background field. This provided a theoretical explanation for the observation, made earlier in (Nepomechie 83) that when computed via dimensional regularization then this beta function coefficient of Yang-Mills theory vanishes in spacetime dimension 26. This of course is the critical dimension of the bosonic string.

Could you expand on what you have in mind?
Am not an expert on this article, but to my mind:
In section 2.2 the authors recall the standard worldline formalism, and generalize it to curved backgrounds. It’s still worldline formalism though, albeit on a curved background. This is then picked up again in section 3.3, quite explicitly so.
