Is there any way to use
\citet in IEEETran? It's a handy command that IEEETran doesn't support.
[number] is allowed to be used as a noun in IEEE,
\citet is not necessary. However, I still define a new command
\citet, but simply make it the same as
\cite. By doing this, I can reuse the Tex source in different places without needing to change
\cite when the former is not supported.
You can use citet combined with numbers citations by loading:
