Occhionero, F., and M. Demianski, 1969: Electric fields in rotating, magnetic, relativistic stars. Phys. Rev. Lett., 23, 1128-1130, doi:10.1103/PhysRevLett.23.1128.

All the current models for pulsars call for very large magnetic fields in rotating neutron stars. Since general relativistic effects are important in the latter, electromagnetism too must be framed consistently (which has been overlooked so far). It is shown that in a rotating neutron star even a uniform magnetic field, static in the corotating frame, implies in the same frame the static electric field which is crucial to the pulsar emission theories.
