Claim of US Patent No. 10,342,004

1. A terminal device comprising:a processor;
memory in electronic communication with the processor;
instructions stored in the memory, the instructions being executable to:
receive, by reception circuitry, a control channel including a Downlink Control Information (DCI) format; and
transmit, by transmission circuitry, a Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH),
wherein the DCI format includes an uplink index and information for indicating a Hybrid Automatic Repeat reQuest (HARQ) process number,
the transmission circuitry, in a case that a first bit of the uplink index is set to 1, adjusts the PUSCH transmission to a first subframe,
the transmission circuitry, in a case that a second bit of the uplink index is set to 1, adjusts the PUSCH transmission to a second subframe, and
the HARQ process number of the PUSCH corresponding to the second bit is determined based on at least whether or not both the first bit and the second bit are set to 1 and the information for indicating the HARQ process number, wherein
in a case that both the first bit of the uplink index and the second bit of the uplink index are set to 1, the HARQ process number of the PUSCH corresponding to the second bit being a first value different from a second value is indicated by the information for indicating the HARQ process number, the first value is determined based on the second value.
