In 1962, a paper called “Multiplication of Many-Digital Numbers by Automatic Computers”, by Anatoly Karatsuba and Yuri Ofman, was published at the Proceedings of the USSR Academy of Sciences. It was here that the Karatsuba multiplication algorithm appeared for the first time. However, Karatsuba himself had nothing to do with the writing of the paper. It was actually written by Kolmogorov (probably with the collaboration of Ofman), and Karatsuba only became aware of that when he was given the reprints that were due to him.
I wonder whether there is some other known example, in Mathematics or in Theoretical Physics, of a situation in which a paper is published on behalf of a person who could have published it themself, without that person being aware of that until the paper was published. So, I am not talking about, for instance, papers that were published after their author died, or something like that.
