I am currently using the usual field \begin{thebibliography} for my references at the end of my scientific papers. The numbers of the citations go from [1] to [19], as usual.

I would like to change this. I would like that the starting number were [9], to [27], for the citations.

How could I do?


Strange, but if you want...



Let us cite \cite{a1},  \cite{a2} and \cite{a3}.
