1. An integrated circuit comprising:
receiving circuitry, which, in operation, controls reception of a control information that is transmitted on one or more consecutive
control channel elements (CCEs) from a base station apparatus; and
decoding circuitry, which, in operation, decodes the received control information in a search space, the search space being
comprised of a plurality of CCEs that includes the one or more consecutive CCEs, the plurality of CCEs starting on a CCE that
is determined from both a number of the one or more consecutive CCEs, and a total number of CCEs configured in a subframe
and a CCE index of a first CCE of the one or more consecutive CCEs being associated with an uplink resource.
