I am trying to create a manuscript by using revtex4-1 class. I am using MikTeX 2.9 on Windows 7 x64. This manuscript is for publication in Physics of Fluids. The following is a MWE.

The problem is that the citation in the manuscript includes both the label and a number, as shown by the following picture.

The error I get during compilation is:

Undefined control sequence \blindtext \cite{asakawa2003cine}

The compiler produces the following logs.

The control sequence at the end of the top line
of your error message was never \def'ed. If you have
misspelled it (e.g., `\hobx'), type `I' and the correct
spelling (e.g., `I\hbox'). Otherwise just continue,
and I'll forget about whatever was undefined.

Process exited normally

As can be seen from the above log, bibtex complains about Warning--I didn't find a database entry for "asakawa2003cine" and uses Database file #1: myAIPNotes.bib. I should also mention that the directory in which my manuscript is there contains the following files before compilation:

myAIP.tex        
revtex4-1.cls    

After I compile, the following files are created:

myAIP.aux        
myAIP.bbl        
myAIP.blg        
myAIP.log        
myAIP.pdf        
myAIP.synctex.gz 
myAIP.tex        
myAIPNotes.bib   
revtex4-1.cls    

I don't know why myAIPNotes.bib is also created. The content of myAIPNotes.bib is as follows:

@CONTROL{REVTEX41Control}
@CONTROL{aip41Control,pages="1",title="0"}

Could someone please help me?

  • You have used hyperref in a previous compilation. Remove the auxiliary files and try again.

  • @egreg: I have removed the auxiliary files several times. Unfortunately, it didn't help. Jul 23, 2013 at 0:27
  • The MWE successfully generated PDF without any problem. Also, all the packages listed in the log-file matches with the packages in my machine.

  • @JagathAR: What could be the problem? How can I track back the cause of problem to produce the pdf with the correct citation? Jul 23, 2013 at 4:19
  • @Ahm: Can you try this one: Remove "D:\Files\myAIP.bbl". That file is not with me :-) Also, do not run bibtex for this time (reference entry is already in the TeX file).
