Errata in Previous Research Discussion
First, it is essential that the former postdoc and the student publish an erratum. It would be inappropriate for the new student to be a co-author of the erratum, but when the error is completely understood, he, and perhaps the advisor, could publish a paper about the physical phenomena that were overlooked earlier. The student should get an acknowledgment in the erratum, but should be consoled by the fact that a new paper might come out of the corrected results.
