Rienhard's stealth coauthor

 You should contact the journal immediately and request that a correction be
published in the next issue.  Journals do screw up and this is the standard
way of correcting it.  Some A&I services index corrigenda (I know that ISI
and Medlars does).  It will not affect your citation rate if you are listed
as the first author, since that is tallied only on first author data.  I would
include the paper in your vita or bibliographies only with your name, and keep
a copy of the journal's apology and/or published correction in case anyone
