Starting from the pseudo- gauge solution for marginal deformations in OSFT, we analytically compute the relation between the perturbative deformation parameter in the solution and the BCFT marginal parameter , up to fifth order, by evaluating the Ellwood invariants. We observe that the microscopic reason why and are different is that the OSFT propagator renormalizes contact-term divergences differently from the contour deformation used in BCFT.
