How to make the font smaller in IEEE trans? I wish to make the font within the minipage smaller

\fbox{\begin{minipage}{8.5cm}$(t_{HSbak}{<}1){\land} (t_{FSbak}{<}1) {\land} (t_{HS}{\geq}2){\land} (t_{FS}{+}t_{HSbak}{\leq}1)$\\\    
\end{minipage}}

Use the default font switch macros like \small, \footnotesize, \tiny, ...:

enter image description here

\documentclass{IEEEtran}
\begin{document}
\fbox{%
  \begin{minipage}{8.5cm}
      $(t_{HSbak}{<}1){\land} (t_{FSbak}{<}1) {\land} (t_{HS}{\geq}2){\land} (t_{FS}{+}t_{HSbak}{\leq}1)$%
  \end{minipage}}

\fbox{%
  \small\begin{minipage}{8.5cm}
      $(t_{HSbak}{<}1){\land} (t_{FSbak}{<}1) {\land} (t_{HS}{\geq}2){\land} (t_{FS}{+}t_{HSbak}{\leq}1)$%
  \end{minipage}}

\fbox{%
  \footnotesize\begin{minipage}{8.5cm}
      $(t_{HSbak}{<}1){\land} (t_{FSbak}{<}1) {\land} (t_{HS}{\geq}2){\land} (t_{FS}{+}t_{HSbak}{\leq}1)$%
  \end{minipage}}

\fbox{%
  \tiny\begin{minipage}{8.5cm}
      $(t_{HSbak}{<}1){\land} (t_{FSbak}{<}1) {\land} (t_{HS}{\geq}2){\land} (t_{FS}{+}t_{HSbak}{\leq}1)$%
  \end{minipage}}
\end{document}

These switches change both the font size, as well as the baseline skip.
