Claim of US Patent No. 10,973,016

1. A method for receiving downlink control information (DCI) in a communication system, the method comprising:identifying an initial bandwidth part based on a master information block received on a physical broadcast channel, wherein the initial bandwidth part is identified based on a control resource set for a system information block indicated by the master information block;
receiving resource allocation information of type 1 indicating an allocated resource, on DCI of DCI format 1_0;
identifying a starting resource block of the allocated resource associated with an active bandwidth part, wherein a starting resource block associated with the initial bandwidth part is based on the starting resource block of the allocated resource associated with the active bandwidth part and a scaling factor determined based on a size of the initial bandwidth part and a size of the active bandwidth part, in case that a size for the DCI of DCI format 1_0 in a user equipment (UE) specific search space (USS) is derived from the size of the initial bandwidth part and the DCI of DCI format 1_0 is applied to the active bandwidth part; and
identifying a length of contiguously allocated resource blocks of the allocated resource associated with the active bandwidth part, wherein a length contiguously allocated resource blocks associated with the initial bandwidth part is based on the length of contiguously allocated resource blocks of the allocated resource associated with the active bandwidth part and the scaling factor, in case that the size for the DCI of DCI format 1_0 in the USS is derived from the size of the initial bandwidth part and the DCI of DCI format 1_0 is applied to the active bandwidth part.
