I am using IEEE Transaction template which is in a double column format.
I have a large matrix which dows not fit in a single column. So, I used the figure option which spanned the matrix in both the columns.
However, I cannot put an Equation number. I need to refer this matrix in the text body. I have put the
\label but in the text, there is no equation number.
If I don't explicitly put
\nonumber, the latex throws compile error.
Is there a way so that the matrix gets assigned an equation number? The following code display the matrix at the botto of the page. I want to display it where cited near the text in equation format, having an equation number.
The first sentence on the right column is not aligned with the first sentence in the left column. Also how to put a label to the equation so that I can refer it? What is the correct way acceptable in IEEE journal or in most journals for formatting these kind of matrices?
