Abstract: When a terminal device receives a MAC CE indicating activation of a second cell in subframe n and an action of monitoring a PDCCH for a first cell is not applied in subframe n+8, an action related to CSI reporting for the second cell on a PUCCH is applied in a subframe that is no earlier than subframe n+8 and in which an action of monitoring the PDCCH for the first cell is applied. When the terminal device receives the MAC CE indicating activation of the second cell in subframe n, the action related to the CSI reporting for the second cell on the PUCCH is applied in subframe n+8, irrespective of whether the action of monitoring the PDCCH for the first cell is applied in subframe n+8.
Abstract: A terminal apparatus of the present invention receives setting of an initial DL BWP by using an RRC message, the setting of the initial DL BWP comprises setting a first parameter and a second parameter of a CORESET #0, a value of an identifier of the CORESET #0 is 0, the first parameter represents the size of the CORESET #0, and the second parameter represents the size of the initial DL BWP. The terminal apparatus of the present invention receives a DCI format that schedules a PDSCH in an active DL BWP, and identifies, based on a field in the DCI format, a resource block set to which the PDSCH is allocated. A value of the field is determined based on the size of the DL BWP, the start resource block, and the number of consecutively allocated resource blocks. The size of the DCI format in a USS is determined based on the size of the CORESET #0, and when the field is applied to the active DL BWP, the size of the DL BWP is the size of the CORESET #0.
