Bibtex provides an easy way to manage references in latex. A great tutorial can get one started with Bibtex quickly. The compilation of a tex document with the correct cross-referencing with bibtex includes several steps.
In order to compile a tex document with the cross-referencing, run the bash

This requires the
bibtex software, both included in the
texlive package. An explanation of what this
bash script does is below.
Explanation of Compilation
The tex document needs to be compiled a total of four times in the following manner
pdflatex <filename_base>.tex bibtex <filename_base> pdflatex <filename_base>.tex pdflatex <filename_base>
pdflatex command tells bibtex what literature we cited in our paper. The
bibtex command creates a
.bib file which will be translated into the references section. The next two steps merge the reference section with the latex document and then assigns successive numbers in the last step.
