Abstract

To solve a problem that although the increase of the number of frequency blocks by allocating discontinuous subcarriers (RBs) as in OFDM enables an increase in multi-diversity effect and an improvement in throughput, the number of RB allocation patterns increases with the increase of the number of frequency blocks, resulting in an increase in the amount of information relating to the allocated RBs, the resource block allocation unit is determined when resource blocks discontinuous on the frequency axis are allocated to a terminal, and the number of bits of scheduling information indicating the allocated resource blocks by using Tree Based is set to the number of bits corresponding to the determined allocation unit.

TECHNICAL FIELD [0001] The present invention relates to a technique for notifying resource allocation information in scheduling. BACKGROUND ART [0002] For uplink according to LTE (Long Term Evolution) in 3GPP (3 rd Generation Partnership Project), an SC (single-carrier)-FDMA (Frequency Division Multiple Access) scheme is adopted for a wireless access scheme to avoid an increase in PAPR (Peak to Average Power Ratio) and achieve wide coverage. According to SC-FDMA, only one frequency block can be allocated per mobile station within one Transmit Time Interval (TTI), where a frequency block is composed of resource blocks (each composed of a plurality of sub-carriers) that are consecutive on the frequency axis. When the number of frequency blocks is thus small, a Tree-Based (see Non-patent Document 1) method can minimize the amount of information on resource allocation. Accordingly, the Tree-Based method is employed in notification of uplink resource allocation information (Uplink Scheduling Grant) in scheduling for LTE uplink. Non-patent Document 1: 3GPP R1-070881, NEC Group, NTT DoCoMo, “Uplink Resource Allocation for E-UTRA,” February 2007. DISCLOSURE OF THE INVENTION Problems to be Solved by the Invention [0004] In broadband wireless communications, influence of a plurality of delay paths causes frequency-selective phasing with which Channel Quality Indicator (CQI) varies on the frequency axis. Moreover, when considering multiple access in which a base station communicates with a plurality of mobile stations, the mobile stations communicate with the base station in different environments, so that CQI in the frequency domain is different from mobile station to mobile station. From such a background, an attempt is made to improve throughput in LTE by scheduling (frequency domain channel dependent scheduling) comprising comparing CQI in the frequency domain among mobile stations, and allocating a sub-carrier with excellent CQI to each mobile station. [0005] When making the frequency domain channel dependent scheduling in SC-FDMA, only one frequency block (frequency block: at least one or more resource blocks consecutive on the frequency axis) with good CQI is allocated to one mobile station within 1 TTI. On the other hand, by making discontinuous sub-carrier allocation to increase the number of frequency blocks as in OFDM (Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) adopted in an LTE downlink access scheme, an additional multi-diversity effect can be achieved to improve throughput. However, an increased number of frequency blocks may cause an increase of overhead due to notification of information on resource block allocation (Scheduling Grant). [0006] In fact, adoption of a Bit Map method (a method suitable for a larger number of frequency blocks) is currently being studied in notification of resource block allocation information in LTE downlink (Downlink Scheduling Grant). The Bit Map method has a greater overhead than that in the Tree-Based method (a method suitable for a smaller number of frequency blocks) for use in notification of LTE uplink RB allocation information (Uplink Scheduling Grant). In particular, resource allocation of 100 RBs requires 100-bit scheduling information when using the Bit Map method regardless the number of frequency blocks. [0007] On the other hand, when using the Tree-Based method, only log 2 100 (100+1)/2=13-bit scheduling information is required for a number of frequency blocks of one; however, as the number of frequency blocks becomes larger, an amount of information multiplied by the number of frequency blocks is required, as compared with a case in which the number of frequency blocks is one. In particular, while the overhead in using the Tree-Based method for a number of frequency blocks=1 is 13 bits as described above, it increases up to 13×2=26 bits for a number of frequency blocks=2, and to 13×4=52 bits for a number of frequency blocks=4. As such, the number of RB allocation patterns is generally larger for an increased number of frequency blocks, and accordingly, the amount of information for Uplink Scheduling Grant becomes greater. Therefore, there is a problem that to enhance the effect of frequency scheduling, the signaling overhead increases relative to a smaller number of frequency blocks. [0008] It is therefore a problem to be solved by the present invention is to provide a technique for avoiding the signaling overhead for scheduling information encountered in enhancing the effect of multi-user diversity. Means for Solving the Problems [0009] An aspect of the present invention for solving the aforementioned problem is a resource allocating method, characterized in comprising: determining an allocation resolution that is a unit of resource block allocation, when allocating at least one or more resource block groups including at least one or more resource blocks consecutive on a frequency axis to a terminal.

The frequency domain channel dependent scheduling is applied to LTE downlink, and a plurality of frequency blocks can be allocated per mobile station within one Transmit Time Interval (TTI), where a frequency block is a resource block group composed of at least one or more resource blocks (RBs: each of which is composed of a plurality of sub-carriers) that are consecutive on the frequency axis. FIG. 23 shows an example of frequency block allocation in LTE downlink scheduling. This represents a case in which four mobile stations are scheduled within one TTI in a system band. The number of frequency blocks for mobile station 1 (UE 1 ) is three, the number of frequency blocks for mobile station 2 (UE 2 ) is two, the frequency block for mobile station 3 (UE 3 ) counts one and the frequency block for mobile station 4 (UE 4 ) counts one. [0074] The present invention is characterized in determining, when a base station that allocates a plurality of frequency blocks to one mobile station as described above allocates resource blocks to terminals, a minimal unit (which will be referred to as allocation resolution hereinbelow) for resource blocks to be allocated, and determining a structure in the Tree-Based method representing the allocated resource blocks. Now details of the present invention will be described below with reference to the accompanying drawings. First Embodiment [0075] The present embodiment will address a case in which a value of the resolution is determined in accordance with the number of frequency blocks determined in making scheduling (resource block allocation). [0076] A block diagram of a base station in the present embodiment is shown in FIG. 1 , and that of a mobile station in FIG. 2 . [0077] First, a configuration of a base station 100 will be described. [0078] A receiver 101 in the base station 100 receives a signal from a mobile station 200 , establishes uplink synchronization using a guard interval, and outputs a base station receive signal S RXB . [0079] An uplink RS (Reference Signal) separator 102 separates from the base station receive signal S RXB an uplink RS signal S URSB in which uplink RS signals of a plurality of mobile stations are multiplexed, and outputs it. [0080] An uplink CQI measurement section 103 receives the uplink RS signals S URSB for a plurality of mobile stations as input, calculates CQI (Channel Quality Indicator) for each mobile station on an RB-by-RB basis, and outputs it as uplink CQI information S UCQB . [0081] An uplink scheduler 104 makes uplink scheduling for each mobile station. The uplink scheduler 104 determines a number of frequency blocks for resources to be allocated based on the uplink CQI information S UCQB . In particular, for good CQI, a larger number of frequency blocks is determined, and for poor CQI, a smaller number of frequency blocks is determined. RBs are allocated with an allocation resolution determined in accordance with the determined number of frequency blocks and with the determined number of frequency blocks. Once the allocation resolution has been determined, a structure in the Tree-Based method representing positions of the allocated RBs is determined accordingly. The resource allocation information for each frequency block representing the positions of the allocated RBs in a Tree-Based form is combined with the value of the allocation resolution into one piece of scheduling information, that is, one piece of UL Scheduling Grant S USCB , which is output in a number of bits in accordance with the determined structure in the Tree-Based method. The number of frequency blocks is also output as S UDFB . [0082] Now processing in the uplink scheduler 104 will be specifically described next. [0083] The uplink scheduler 104 modifies and sets a minimal frequency bandwidth in resource allocation, that is, an allocation resolution, which is a minimal unit for resource block allocation, according to the number of frequency blocks determined based on the uplink CQI information S UCQB . Specifically, a higher allocation resolution is set for a larger number of frequency blocks. [0084] Next, a specific example will be described below, in which the number of signaling bits for use in resource allocation for one user is held down within 14 bits for a system band having 10 RBs. [0085] Resource allocation at the uplink scheduler 104 is made using a correspondence table representing a relationship between the number of frequency blocks and allocation resolution, as shown in FIG. 3 . The correspondence table is defined depending upon a communication environment, etc. For example, a higher allocation resolution is defined for a larger number of frequency blocks. By using this relationship, it is possible to hold the number of signaling bits down to 14 bits including notification of the value of the allocation resolution (2 bits) for a number of frequency blocks of four or lower. [0086] Assume that there are four mobile stations UE 1 , UE 2 , UE 3 , UE 4 , and the number of frequency blocks allocated to UE 1 is three, that allocated to UE 2 is two, that allocated to UE 3 is one, and that allocated to UE 4 is one. Now representing the resource blocks shown in FIG. 4 as RB 0 , RB 1 , . . . , RB 8 , RB 9 in sequence from left to right, it is assumed that scheduling is made to allocate RB 0 , RB 1 , RB 4 , RB 5 , RB 8 and RB 9 to UE 1 , RB 3 and RB 6 to UE 2 , RB 2 to UE 3 , and RB 7 to UE 4 . Here, a case in which the scheduling in FIG. 4 and relationship between the number of frequency blocks and allocation resolution in FIG. 3 are used will be described. FIGS. 5 , 6 , 7 and 8 show examples of RB allocation and UL Scheduling Grant using the Tree-Based method for UE 1 , UE 2 , UE 3 and UE 4 , respectively. [0087] Since the number of frequency blocks is one for UE 3 and UE 4 , the allocation resolution is 1 RB with reference to the correspondence table in FIG. 3 . Therefore, when allocating resource blocks to UE 3 and UE 4 , they are allocated such that one resource block is allocated with a number of frequency blocks within one. To represent a resource corresponding to one frequency block within the whole band, 10 RBs, in the Tree-Based method with an allocation resolution of 1 RB, a value of any one of 1-55 is required (6 bits). Referring to FIGS. 7 and 8 , values of 1-55 representing resources of one frequency block are arranged in a tree structure. The tree structure in the Tree-Based method varies with the allocation resolution. In other words, the number of bits for UL Scheduling Grant also varies. [0088] For example, referring to FIG. 9 , when the allocation resolution is 1 RB, the tree structure is constructed from a number sequence of 1-55 that can be expressed by 6 bits. When the allocation resolution is 2 RBs, allocation is made for each unit of two resource blocks, so that it can be handled with a number sequence similar to that for a system band of five RBs. Accordingly, the tree structure is constructed from a number sequence of 1-15. By correlating the tree structure with the determined number of frequency blocks in a one-to-one correspondence, and notifying the allocation resolution or number of frequency blocks to the mobile station, a tree structure in the Tree-Based method can be discriminated. [0089] Since scheduling is made with only a number of frequency blocks=1 for UE 3 and UE 4 , they require a total of 8 bits (=1×6+2 bits) including notification of the value of the allocation resolution. Scheduling information on resource allocation (UL Scheduling Grant) to be notified to UE 3 has 8 bits, and a value of the allocation resolution of “1” and a position of “2” (“2” in FIG. 7 ), which is the position of an allocated resource block represented in a tree structure, are notified thereto. UL Scheduling Grant for UE 4 has 8 bits, and a value of the allocation resolution of “1” and a position represented in a tree structure, “7” (“7” in FIG. 8 ), are notified thereto. [0090] For UE 2 , the number of frequency blocks is two, and therefore, the allocation resolution is 1 RB with reference to the correspondence table in FIG. 3 . To represent a resource corresponding to one frequency block within the whole band, 10 RBs, in the Tree-Based method with an allocation resolution of 1 RB, a value of any one of 1-55 that can be denoted by 6 bits is required. Since scheduling is made with two frequency blocks for UE 2 , it requires a total of 14 bits (=2×6+2 bits) including notification of the value of the allocation resolution. Then, UL Scheduling Grant for UE 2 has 14 bits, and a value of the allocation resolution of “1” and positions of allocated resource blocks represented in a tree structure, “3” and “6” (“3” and “6” in FIG. 6 ), are notified thereto. [0091] For UE 1 , the number of frequency blocks is three, and therefore, the allocation resolution is 2 RBs with reference to the correspondence table in FIG. 3 . To represent a resource corresponding to one frequency block within the whole band, 10 RBs, in the Tree-Based method with an allocation resolution of 2 RBs, a value of any one of 1-15, which can be denoted by 4 bits, is required. Since scheduling is made with three frequency blocks for UE 1 , it requires a total of 14 bits (=3×4+2 bits) including notification of the value of the allocation resolution. Then, UL Scheduling Grant for UE 1 has 14 bits, and a value of the allocation resolution of “2” and positions of allocated resource blocks represented in a tree structure, “0”, “2” and “4” (“0”, “2” and “4” in FIG. 5 ) are notified thereto. By thus increasing the allocation resolution, the amount of information on resource allocation can be held down within 14 bits even for an increased number of frequency blocks. [0092] Next, a general method of generating resource allocation information in a tree structure will be described. An example of an allocation resolution of P resource blocks (P is one or more) and a number of frequency blocks of n (n is one or more) will be described hereinbelow with reference to EQ. 1. In this example, one frequency block is defined as P (allocation resolution) consecutive resource blocks. Resource allocation information is composed of n resource indicator values (RIV's). The resource indicator value RIV n for an n-th frequency block represents a frequency block at start (RBG start,n ) and a length of subsequent frequency blocks (L CRBGs,n ). The n-th resource indicator value RIV n is defined by EQ. 1 below: [0000] if   ( L CRBGs , n - 1 ) ≤ ⌊ N RBG UL / 2 ⌋   then   RIV n = N RB UL  ( L CRBGs , n - 1 ) + RBG START , n   else   RIV n = N RBG UL  ( N RBG UL - L CRBGs , n + 1 ) + ( N RBG UL - 1 - RBG START , n ) ( EQ .  1 ) [0000] where N UL RBG is the number of frequency blocks in the whole system. The number of resource blocks in the whole system is N UL RBG ×P (allocation resolution). [0093] The thus-generated UL Scheduling Grant S USCB is input to a downlink control signal generator 111 . The downlink control signal generator 111 is also supplied as input with DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB , mobile station identification information S UIDB , and frequency block signal S UDFB with which the number of frequency blocks is indicated. The downlink control signal generator 111 multiplexes these input signals to generate a downlink control signal as PDCCH (Physical Downlink Control Channel) S DCCB , and outputs it. [0094] A downlink RS signal generator 112 generates a downlink RS signal and outputs it as a downlink RS signal S DRSB . [0095] A downlink data signal generator 113 receives the DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB as input, multiplexes downlink data signals from a plurality of mobile stations in accordance with an RB pattern indicated by the DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB , generates Physical Downlink Shared Channel (PDSCH) S DCCB , and outputs it. [0096] A multiplexer 114 receives the PDCCH S DCCB , RS signal S DRSB and PDSCH S DDCB as input, multiplexes these signals to generate a downlink multiplexed signal S MUXB , and outputs it. [0097] A transmitter 115 receives the downlink multiplexed signal S MUXB as input, generates a transmit signal S TXB , and outputs it. [0098] An uplink data signal separator 106 receives the base station receive signal S RXB as input, extracts therefrom Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) S UDCB in which uplink data signals from a plurality of mobile stations are multiplexed, and outputs it. An uplink data signal demodulator 109 is supplied with the PUSCH S UDCB as input, demodulates the PUSCH S UDCB , and reproduces mobile station transmitted data. [0099] An uplink control signal separator 108 receives the base station receive signal S RXB as input, extracts therefrom Physical Uplink Control Channel (PUCCH) S UCCB in which uplink control signals from a plurality of mobile stations are multiplexed, and outputs it. An uplink control signal demodulator 109 demodulates the PUCCH S UCCB , and outputs a downlink CQI measurement signal S DCQB , which is a result of measurement of downlink CQI transmitted by a plurality of mobile stations. A downlink scheduler 110 receives the downlink CQI measurement signal S DCQB as input, makes downlink scheduling for a plurality of mobile stations, generates DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB , which represents information on allocated RBs, and outputs it. [0100] A UE ID generator 116 generates mobile station identification information S UIDB , and outputs it. [0101] Subsequently, a mobile station will be described. FIG. 2 is a block diagram showing a main configuration of a mobile station in the present embodiment. [0102] A receiver 201 in a mobile station 200 receives a signal from the base station 100 , establishes downlink synchronization using a guard interval, and outputs a mobile station receive signal S RXU . [0103] A downlink RS (Reference Signal) separator 202 receives the mobile station receive signal S RXU as input, separates therefrom a downlink RS signal S DRSU in which downlink RS signals are multiplexed, and outputs it. A downlink CQI measurement section 203 receives the downlink RS signal S DRSU as input, calculates CQI on an RB-by-RB basis, and outputs it as downlink CQI information S DCQB . [0104] A downlink control signal separator 206 receives the mobile station receive signal S RXU as input, separates therefrom PDCCH S DCCU in which downlink control signals from a plurality of mobile stations are multiplexed, and outputs it. [0105] A downlink control signal demodulator 207 receives the PDCCH S DCCU as input, demodulates the PDCCH S DCCU to reproduce a downlink control signal, separates therefrom a result of reproduction in which mobile station identification information corresponding to the mobile station itself is multiplexed, and outputs it as a downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU . It should be noted that only one PDCCH is multiplexed for the mobile station itself. Moreover, the downlink control signal demodulator 207 checks a result of demodulation of the PDCCH S DCCU and reproduction of the downlink control signal as to whether it contains an error, in a case that no error is found, generates a signal indicating ACK, or otherwise, a signal indicating NACK as a downlink control signal decision signal S DAKU , and outputs it. It should be noted that the downlink control signal decision signal S DAKU is notified from the mobile station 200 to the base station 100 , and in a case that the downlink control signal decision signal S DAKU is NACK, the base station 100 retransmits PDCCH corresponding to the mobile station 200 . [0106] A downlink scheduling information extracting section 208 receives the downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU as input, extracts therefrom downlink RB allocation decision information S DSCU corresponding to downlink resource allocation information, and outputs it. [0107] An uplink scheduling information extracting section 210 extracts, from the downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU , UL Scheduling Grant that represents information on allocated uplink RBs. Next, it discriminates a tree structure in the Tree-Based method from the value of the allocation resolution contained in the UL Scheduling Grant, identifies an RB indicated by the uplink RB allocation information in this tree structure, and outputs it as uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU . [0108] An uplink control signal generator 211 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU and downlink CQI information S DCQB as input, generates Physical Uplink Control Channel (PUCCH) S UCCU in which the downlink CQI information S DCQB is multiplexed with a predetermined resource for a control signal indicated by the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , and outputs it. [0109] An uplink RS signal generator 212 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU as input, generates an uplink RS transmit signal S URSU using a predetermined resource for RS in the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , and outputs it. [0110] An uplink data signal generator 213 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU as input, generates Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) S UDCU using a predetermined resource for a data signal in the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , and outputs it. [0111] A multiplexer 214 receives the PUCCH S UCCU , uplink RS transmit signal S URSU , PUSCH S UDCU and downlink control signal decision signal S DAKU as input, multiplexes these signals to generate a mobile station multiplexed signal S MUXU , and outputs it. The transmitter 215 receives the mobile station multiplexed signal S MUXU as input, generates a mobile station transmit signal S TUX , and transmits it to the base station 100 . [0112] A downlink data signal separator 204 receives the downlink RB allocation receive signal S DSCU and mobile station receive signal S RXU as input, separates therefrom PDSCH S DDCU multiplexed with the downlink RB allocated to the mobile station itself based on the downlink RB allocation decision information S DSCU , and outputs it. The downlink data signal demodulator 205 receives PDSCH S DDCU as input, demodulates the PDSCH S DDCU , and reproduces transmitted data from the base station to the mobile station itself. [0113] Subsequently, an operation of the present embodiment will be described with reference to a flow chart in FIG. 10 . [0114] The receiver 101 in the base station 100 receives a signal from the mobile station 200 , establishes uplink synchronization using a guard interval, and outputs a base station receive signal S RXB (Step S 1 ). [0115] The uplink RS (Reference Signal) separator 102 separates from the output base station receive signal S RXB an uplink RS signal S URSB in which uplink RS signals from a plurality of mobile stations are multiplexed, and outputs it (Step S 2 ). [0116] From the uplink RS signals S URSB for a plurality of mobile stations, the uplink CQI measurement section 103 calculates CQI (Channel Quality Indicator) for each mobile station on an RB-by-RB basis, and outputs it as uplink CQI information S UCQB (Step S 3 ). [0117] The uplink scheduler 104 determines a number of frequency blocks for resources to be allocated to each mobile station based on the uplink CQI information S UCQB for each mobile station (Step S 4 ). [0118] An allocation resolution correlated with the determined number of frequency blocks is determined using the correspondence table as shown in FIG. 3 kept in the equipment itself, whereby a structure in the Tree-Based method is determined, and the number of bits for UL Scheduling Grant is set as a number of bits in accordance with the determined structure in the Tree-Based method (Step S 5 ). [0119] RBs are allocated with resource blocks in a number equal to the determined allocation resolution and with the determined number of frequency blocks (Step S 6 ). [0120] Next, the uplink scheduler 104 outputs scheduling information representing positions of the allocated RBs in a Tree-Based form and the value of the allocation resolution in a specified number of bits as UL Scheduling Grant S USCB , and outputs the number of frequency blocks as S UDFB (Step S 7 ). [0121] The downlink control signal generator 111 is supplied as input with the UL Scheduling Grant S USCB , DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB , mobile station identification information S UIDB and frequency block signal S UDFB , multiplexes these input signals to generate a downlink control signal as PDCCH (Physical Downlink Control Channel) S DCCB , and outputs it (Step S 8 ). [0122] The downlink RS signal generator 112 generates a downlink RS signal as a downlink RS signal S DRSB , and outputs it; the downlink data signal generator 113 receives the DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB as input, multiplexes downlink data signals from a plurality of mobile stations together in accordance with an RB pattern indicated by the DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB , generates Physical Downlink Shared Channel (PDSCH) S DDCB , and outputs it (Step S 9 ). [0123] The multiplexer 114 receives the PDCCH S DCCB , RS signal S DRSB and PDSCH S DSCB as input, multiplexes these signals to generate a downlink multiplexed signal S MUXB , and outputs it; the transmitter 115 receives the downlink multiplexed signal S MUXB as input, generates a transmit signal S TXB , and outputs it (Step S 10 ). [0124] The receiver 201 in the mobile station 200 receives a signal from the base station 100 , establishes downlink synchronization using a guard interval, and outputs a mobile station receive signal S RXU (Step S 11 ). [0125] The downlink RS (Reference Signal) separator 202 receives the mobile station receive signal S RXU as input, and separates therefrom a downlink RS signal S DRSU in which the downlink RS signals are multiplexed; the downlink CQI measurement section 203 receives the downlink RS signal S DRSU as input, calculates CQI on an RB-by-RB basis, and outputs it as downlink CQI information S DCQB (Step S 12 ). [0126] The downlink control signal separator 206 receives the mobile station receive signal S RXU as input, and separates therefrom PDCCH S DCCU in which downlink control signals from a plurality of mobile stations are multiplexed; the downlink control signal demodulator 207 demodulates the PDCCH S DCCU to reproduce a downlink control signal, separates therefrom a result of reproduction in which mobile station identification information corresponding to the mobile station itself is multiplexed, and outputs it as a downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU (Step S 13 ). [0127] The downlink scheduling information extracting section 208 receives the downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU as input, extracts therefrom downlink RB allocation decision information S DSCU corresponding to downlink resource allocation information, and outputs it (Step S 14 ). [0128] The uplink scheduling information extracting section 210 extracts, from the downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU , UL Scheduling Grant, which represents information on allocated uplink RBs, and checks the value of the allocation resolution (Step S 15 ). [0129] Next, it discriminates a tree structure in the Tree-Based method from the value of the allocation resolution, identifies RBs indicated by the uplink RB allocation information in this tree structure, and outputs it as uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU (Step S 16 ). [0130] The uplink control signal generator 211 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU and downlink CQI information S DCQB as input, generates Physical Uplink Control Channel (PUCCH) S UCCU in which the downlink CQI information S DCQB is multiplexed with a predetermined resource for a control signal indicated by the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , and outputs it (Step S 17 ). [0131] The uplink RS signal generator 212 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU as input, generates an uplink RS transmit signal S URSU using a predetermined resource for RS in the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , and outputs it (Step S 18 ). [0132] The uplink data signal generator 213 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU as input, generates Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) S UDCU using a predetermined resource for a data signal in the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , and outputs it (Step S 19 ). [0133] The multiplexer 214 receives the PUCCH S UCCU , uplink RS transmit signal S URSU , PUSCH S UDCU and downlink control signal decision signal S DAKU as input, and multiplexes these signals to generate a mobile station multiplexed signal S MUXU ; the transmitter 215 transmits the mobile station transmit signal S MUXU to the base station 100 (Step S 20 ). [0134] While a mode in which the number of frequency blocks is determined from a condition of mobile station's channel quality (the CQI measured by a sounding reference signal) is addressed in the embodiment described above, it may be contemplated that the present embodiment uses information about a communication environment, such as, for example, the cell size, system bandwidth, coverage of a base station, bandwidth of an uplink sounding reference signal, bandwidth used in uplink data transmission, number of levels in multi-level modulation and code rate used in uplink data transmission, transmittable/receivable bandwidth of a mobile station (sometimes referred to as UE capability), and type of uplink transmission data (VoIP, HTTP, FTP etc.), or information affecting the communication environment, such as the billing scheme in which a user signs on, power headroom (which is a difference between the maximum transmit power of a mobile station and an actual transmit power of the mobile station), and target SINR in uplink power control. Moreover, since the cell size is determined by information affecting the communication environment, such as the location of a base station, distance between base stations, and interference power, these information may be used to select a number of frequency blocks. [0135] Furthermore, while the description has been made in the present embodiment using a configuration in which a number of frequency blocks is determined from a condition of mobile station's channel quality and an allocation resolution is set in accordance with the frequency blocks, the configuration may be one such that the allocation resolution is set in accordance with a condition of mobile station's channel quality, the information on a communication environment described above, or the information that affect a communication environment described above. Moreover, in the present embodiment, the number of frequency blocks is described as being notified through Physical Downlink Control Channel (PDCCH), it is additionally notified with a control signal in a higher layer mapped over PBCH (Physical Broadcast Channel), PDSCH (Physical Downlink Shared Channel), which is also referred to as Dynamic BCH, or the like. In this case, a number of frequency blocks S UDFB is input to a PBCH generator or PDSCH generator (both not shown) provided in the downlink control signal generator 111 in the base station, and is notified to a mobile station through the PBCH or PDSCH. Furthermore, since information on the uplink and downlink control signals varies from frame to frame in about 1 msec, there arises a problem that processing in a terminal becomes complicated in a case that the allocation resolution is modified with such a variation. Thus, additional limitation may be posed to modify the allocation resolution in a cycle of a plurality of frames. [0136] Moreover, while the description has been made using a mode in which the uplink scheduler 104 allocates RBs with resource blocks in a number equal to the determined allocation resolution and with the determined number of frequency blocks in the present embodiment, a mode may be contemplated in which RBs are allocated with resource blocks in a number equal to the determined allocation resolution and within the determined number of frequency blocks. [0137] The system band has been described as having 10 RBs for simplifying the explanation above; now an effect of reducing the number of bits in an actual LTE system having a system band of 20 MHz will be described. Similarly to the LTE downlink in which a plurality of frequency blocks can be allocated, the number of bits required for one frequency block in making notification using the Tree-Based method in a system band of 20 MHz (the number of RBs=100) is log 2 100(100+1)/2=13 bits. Thus, a correspondence table of the number of frequency blocks and allocation resolution as shown FIG. 3 is established so as not to exceed 37 bits, which is an upper limit of the scheduling information stipulated for actual LTE downlink. FIG. 11 shows a number of bits required to notify RB patterns for frequency blocks in a number equal to the number of frequency blocks using the Tree-Based method, for numbers of frequency blocks of 1-4, respectively. Thus, in accordance with the present invention, the correspondence between the number of frequency blocks and allocation resolution can be established in accordance with an environment, and therefore, it is possible to hold the number of signaling bits for scheduling information down to 35 bits, including notification of an allocation resolution (two bits), which is less than the stipulated upper limit, 37 bits. [0138] As described above, the number of frequency blocks for a mobile station with good channel quality is increased, while that for a mobile station with poor channel quality is decreased, and an allocation resolution is determined accordingly. This is because a mobile station with good channel quality performs transmission with a lower electric power density, and hence, with a broader band, and since the channel quality is good as a whole, it will not be degraded even when the allocation resolution is increased with the number of frequency blocks. On the other hand, a mobile station with poor channel quality performs transmission with a higher electric power density, and hence, with a narrower band, and since the channel quality is poor as a whole, the allocation resolution must be reduced with the number of frequency blocks in order to accurately select better resources among all. Thus, by correlating the allocation resolution, the number of frequency blocks and the channel quality of a mobile station, degradation of the reception property due to setting of an allocation resolution may be reduced. Second Embodiment [0139] The embodiment described above addresses a case in which a base station notifies a value of the allocation resolution borne on UL Scheduling Grant to a mobile station. The following embodiment will address a case in which a base station sets an allocation resolution correlated with a number of frequency blocks in one-to-one correspondence, and a mobile station recognizes the allocation resolution from the notified number of frequency blocks. It should be noted that components similar to those in the foregoing embodiment are designated by similar reference numerals and detailed description thereof will be omitted. [0140] The uplink scheduler 104 in the base station 100 makes uplink scheduling for each mobile station. The uplink scheduler 104 determines a number of frequency blocks for resources to be allocated based on uplink CQI information S UCQB . RBs are allocated with an allocation resolution set in accordance with the determined number of frequency blocks and with the determined number of frequency blocks. The scheduling information representing positions of the allocated RBs is output as UL Scheduling Grant S USCB , and the number of frequency blocks is output as S UDFB . [0141] The downlink control signal generator 111 in the base station 100 receives the UL Scheduling Grant S USCB , DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB , mobile station identification information S UIDB , and frequency block signal S UDFB as input, multiplexes these signals to generate a downlink control signal as PDCCH (Physical Downlink Control Channel) S DCCB , and outputs it. It should be noted that the number of frequency blocks is notified not only through the Physical Downlink Control Channel (PDCCH) but also through PBCH, PDSCH, etc. [0142] The downlink control signal demodulator 207 in the mobile station 200 receives the PDCCH S DCCU as input, demodulates the PDCCH S DCCU to reproduce a downlink control signal, separates therefrom a result of reproduction in which mobile station identification information corresponding to the mobile station itself is multiplexed, and outputs it as a downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU . [0143] The uplink scheduling information extracting section 210 in the mobile station 200 extracts, from the downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU , UL Scheduling Grant, which represents information on allocated uplink RBs, and frequency block signal S UDFU . Next, it recognizes an allocation resolution correlated with the number of frequency blocks in a one-to-one correspondence from the frequency block signal S UDFU and the correspondence table kept by the mobile station itself. It then discriminates a tree structure in the Tree-Based method from the allocation resolution, identifies RBs indicated by the uplink RB allocation information in this tree structure, and outputs it as uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU . [0144] Subsequently, an operation of the present embodiment will be described with reference to a flow chart in FIG. 12 . [0145] The receiver 101 in the base station 100 receives a signal from the mobile station 200 , establishes uplink synchronization using a guard interval, and outputs a base station receive signal S RXB (Step S 1 ). [0146] The uplink RS (Reference Signal) separator 102 separates from the output base station receive signal S RXB an uplink RS signal S URSB in which uplink RS signals from a plurality of mobile stations are multiplexed, and outputs it (Step S 2 ). [0147] From the uplink RS signals S URSB for a plurality of mobile stations, the uplink CQI measurement section 103 calculates CQI (Channel Quality Indicator) for each mobile station on an RB-by-RB basis, and outputs it as uplink CQI information S UCQB (Step S 3 ). [0148] The uplink scheduler 104 determines a number of frequency blocks for resources to be allocated to each mobile station based on the uplink CQI information S UCQB for each mobile station (Step S 4 ). [0149] An allocation resolution correlated with the determined number of frequency blocks is determined using the correspondence table as shown in FIG. 3 kept in the equipment itself, whereby a structure in the Tree-Based method is determined, and the number of bits for UL Scheduling Grant is set as a number of bits in accordance with the determined structure in the Tree-Based method (Step S 5 ). [0150] RBs are allocated with resource blocks in a number equal to the determined allocation resolution and with the determined number of frequency blocks (Step S 6 ). [0151] Next, the uplink scheduler 104 outputs scheduling information representing positions of the allocated RBs in a Tree-Based form in a specified number of bits as UL Scheduling Grant S USCB , and outputs the number of frequency blocks as S UDFB (Step S 7 - 1 ). [0152] The downlink control signal generator 111 is supplied as input with the UL Scheduling Grant S USCB , DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB , mobile station identification information S UIDB and frequency block signal S UDFB , multiplexes these input signals to generate a downlink control signal as PDCCH (Physical Downlink Control Channel) S DCCB , and outputs it (Step S 8 ). [0153] The downlink RS signal generator 112 generates a downlink RS signal as a downlink RS signal S DRSB , and outputs it; the downlink data signal generator 113 receives the DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB as input, multiplexes downlink data signals from a plurality of mobile stations together in accordance with an RB pattern indicated by the DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB , generates Physical Downlink Shared Channel (PDSCH) S DDCB , and outputs it (Step S 9 ). [0154] The multiplexer 114 receives the PDCCH S DSCB , RS signal S DRSB and PDSCH S DDCB as input, multiplexes these signals to generate a downlink multiplexed signal S MUXB , and outputs it; the downlink multiplexed signal S MUXB is transmitted by the transmitter 115 (Step S 10 ). [0155] The receiver 201 in the mobile station 200 receives a signal from the base station 100 , establishes downlink synchronization using a guard interval, and outputs a mobile station receive signal S RXU (Step S 11 ). [0156] The downlink RS (Reference Signal) separator 202 receives the mobile station receive signal S RXU as input, and separates therefrom a downlink RS signal S DRSU in which the downlink RS signals are multiplexed; the downlink CQI measurement section 203 calculates CQI from the downlink RS signal S DRSU on an RB-by-RB basis, and outputs it as downlink CQI information S DCQB (Step S 12 ). [0157] The downlink control signal separator 206 receives the mobile station receive signal S RXU as input, separates therefrom PDCCH S DCCU in which downlink control signals from a plurality of mobile stations are multiplexed, and outputs it; the downlink control signal demodulator 207 demodulates the PDCCH S DCCU to reproduce a downlink control signal, separates therefrom a result of reproduction in which mobile station identification information corresponding to the mobile station itself is multiplexed, and outputs it as a downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU (Step S 13 ). [0158] The downlink scheduling information extracting section 208 receives the downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU as input, extracts therefrom downlink RB allocation decision information S DSCU corresponding to downlink resource allocation information, and outputs it (Step S 14 ). [0159] The uplink scheduling information extracting section 210 extracts, from the downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU , UL Scheduling Grant, which represents information on allocated uplink RBs, and frequency block signal S UDFU , and recognizes the value of the allocation resolution based on the number of frequency blocks represented by the frequency block signal S UDFU (Step S 15 - 1 ). [0160] Next, it discriminates a tree structure in the Tree-Based method from the value of the allocation resolution, identifies RBs indicated by the uplink RB allocation information in this tree structure, and outputs it as uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU (Step S 16 ). [0161] The uplink control signal generator 211 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU and downlink CQI information S DCQB as input, generates Physical Uplink Control Channel (PUCCH) S UCCU in which the downlink CQI information S DCQB is multiplexed with a predetermined resource for a control signal indicated by the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , and outputs it (Step S 17 ). [0162] The uplink RS signal generator 212 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU as input, generates an uplink RS transmit signal S URSU using a predetermined resource for RS in the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , and outputs it (Step S 18 ). [0163] The uplink data signal generator 213 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU as input, generates Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) S UDCU using a predetermined resource for a data signal in the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , and outputs it (Step S 19 ). [0164] The multiplexer 214 receives the PUCCH S UCCU , uplink RS transmit signal S URSU , PUSCH S USCU and downlink control signal decision signal S DAKU as input, and multiplexes these signals to generate a mobile station multiplexed signal S MUXU ; the transmitter 215 transmits the mobile station transmit signal S MUXU to the base station 100 (Step S 20 ). [0165] Other methods include one involving correlating the allocation resolution with downlink CQI information and/or with localization information for a mobile station in the uplink control signal that the mobile station notifies to the base station, with MCS (Modulation and Coding Scheme) and/or with power control target value in the downlink control signal that the base station notifies to the mobile station, or the like in a one-to-one correspondence. By correlating information in these control signals with the allocation resolution, the allocation resolution can be shared between the base station and mobile station. Moreover, a tree structure in the Tree-Based method may be discriminated from the number of frequency blocks notified by the base station. [0166] According to the present embodiment, since the value of the allocation resolution is not notified, the number of signaling bits can be reduced by those for notifying the value of the allocation resolution (two bits). Third Embodiment [0167] The embodiments described above have addressed a case in which an allocation resolution is determined in accordance with the number of frequency blocks determined by the uplink scheduler 104 . The following embodiment will address a case in which an allocation resolution is determined in accordance with a maximum number of frequency blocks determined by a maximum-number-of-frequency-blocks determining section 105 in accordance with uplink CQI. It should be noted that components similar to those in the foregoing embodiments are designated by similar reference numerals and detailed description thereof will be omitted. [0168] FIG. 13 shows a block diagram of a base station 100 in the present embodiment. This is different from the foregoing embodiments in that a maximum-number-of-frequency-blocks determining section 105 is incorporated. [0169] The maximum-number-of-frequency-blocks determining section 105 receives uplink CQI information S UCQB as input, determines a maximum number of frequency blocks in resource blocks to be allocated to mobile stations, generates a maximum-frequency-block signal S UDFB for each mobile station, and outputs it. [0170] For example, in MC-FDMA in which output of a transmitter DFT (Discrete Fourier Transform) in DFT-spread-OFDM (Discrete Fourier Transform-spread-Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) is allocated to at least one or more frequency blocks, PAPR becomes higher for a larger number of frequency blocks, and therefore, the PAPR increase in mobile stations at the periphery of a cell becomes problematic unless a limit is imposed on the number of frequency blocks. Thus, based on system information for a base station or mobile station or the like, a maximum allowable number of frequency blocks may be sometimes set for each base station (cell), for each mobile station, or for each mobile station group. Thus, the maximum-number-of-frequency-blocks determining section 105 sets a larger maximum number of frequency blocks in a situation that a greater multi-user diversity effect is desirable (in a situation that the system band is broad, or CQI is good), or sets a smaller maximum number of frequency blocks in a situation that an increase in overhead is desired to be held down (in a situation that the system band is narrow, or CQI is poor). [0171] The uplink scheduler 104 makes uplink scheduling for each mobile station. The uplink scheduler 104 receives uplink CQI information S UCQB and maximum-frequency-block signal S UDFB as input, limits the maximum number of frequency blocks for resource blocks to be allocated within a number represented by the maximum-frequency-block signal S UDFB , and makes RB allocation with an allocation resolution corresponding to the maximum-frequency-block signal S UDFB . Then, it outputs scheduling information, which is scheduling information representing the positions of the allocated RBs, and maximum number of frequency blocks as UL Scheduling Grant S USCB . [0172] Subsequently, a description will be made on the mobile station 200 . FIG. 14 shows a block diagram of a mobile station 200 in the present embodiment. This is different from the foregoing embodiments in that a maximum-number-of-frequency-blocks extracting section 209 is incorporated. [0173] The maximum-number-of-frequency-blocks extracting section 209 receives downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU as input, separates therefrom a received maximum-frequency-block signal S UDFU for the mobile station itself, and outputs it. [0174] The uplink scheduling information extracting section 210 extracts, from the downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU , UL Scheduling Grant that represents information on allocated uplink RBs. Next, it discriminates an allocation resolution correlated with the received maximum-frequency-block signal S UDFU in a one-to-one correspondence from the received maximum-frequency-block signal S UDFU output from the maximum-number-of-frequency-blocks extracting section 209 . It discriminates a tree structure in the Tree-Based method from the allocation resolution, identifies RBs indicated by the uplink RB allocation information in this tree structure, and outputs it as uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU . [0175] Subsequently, an operation of the present embodiment will be described with reference to a flow chart in FIG. 15 . [0176] The receiver 101 in the base station 100 receives a signal from the mobile station 200 , establishes uplink synchronization using a guard interval, and outputs a base station receive signal S RXB (Step S 1 ). [0177] The uplink RS (Reference Signal) separator 102 separates from the output base station receive signal S RXB an uplink RS signal S URSB in which uplink RS signals from a plurality of mobile stations are multiplexed, and outputs it (Step S 2 ). [0178] From the uplink RS signals S URSB for a plurality of mobile stations, the uplink CQI measurement section 103 calculates CQI (Channel Quality Indicator) for each mobile station on an RB-by-RB basis, and outputs it as uplink CQI information S UCQB (Step S 3 ). [0179] The maximum-number-of-frequency-blocks determining section 105 determines a maximum number of frequency blocks in resource blocks to be allocated to each mobile station based on the uplink CQI information S UCQB , generates a maximum-frequency-block signal S UDFB for each mobile station, and outputs it (Step S 4 - 1 ). [0180] The uplink scheduler 104 determines an allocation resolution correlated with the maximum number of frequency blocks represented in the maximum-frequency-block signal S UDFB using the correspondence table as shown in FIG. 3 kept in the equipment itself, whereby it also determines a structure in the Tree-Based method, and sets the number of bits for UL Scheduling Grant as a number of bits in accordance with the determined structure in the Tree-Based method (Step S 5 ). [0181] RBs are allocated with resource blocks in a number equal to the determined allocation resolution and within the determined number of frequency blocks (Step S 6 ). [0182] Next, the uplink scheduler 104 outputs scheduling information representing positions of the allocated RBs, and the maximum number of frequency blocks in a specified number of bits as UL Scheduling Grant S USCB (Step S 7 - 2 ). [0183] The downlink control signal generator 111 is supplied as input with the UL Scheduling Grant S USCB , DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB , mobile station identification information S UIDB and received maximum-frequency-block signal S UDFB , multiplexes these input signals to generate a downlink control signal as PDCCH (Physical Downlink Control Channel) S DCCB , and outputs it (Step S 8 ). [0184] The downlink RS signal generator 112 generates a downlink RS signal as a downlink RS signal S DRSB , and outputs it; the downlink data signal generator 113 receives the DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB as input, multiplexes downlink data signals from a plurality of mobile stations together in accordance with an RB pattern indicated by the DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB , generates Physical Downlink Shared Channel (PDSCH) S DDCB , and outputs it (Step S 9 ). [0185] The multiplexer 114 receives the PDCCH S DCCB , RS signal S DRSB and PDSCH S DDCB as input, and multiplexes these signals to generate a downlink multiplexed signal S MUXB ; the transmitter 115 generates a transmit signal S TXB from the downlink multiplexed signal S MUXB , and outputs it (Step S 10 ). [0186] The receiver 201 in the mobile station 200 receives a signal from the base station 100 , establishes downlink synchronization using a guard interval, and outputs a mobile station receive signal S RXU (Step S 11 ). [0187] The downlink RS (Reference Signal) separator 202 receives the mobile station receive signal S RXU as input, and separates therefrom a downlink RS signal S DRSU in which the downlink RS signals are multiplexed; the downlink CQI measurement section 203 receives the downlink RS signal S DRSU as input, calculates CQI on an RB-by-RB basis, and outputs it as downlink CQI information S DCQB (Step S 12 ). [0188] The downlink control signal separator 206 receives the mobile station receive signal S RXU as input, and separates therefrom PDCCH S DCCU in which downlink control signals from a plurality of mobile stations are multiplexed; the downlink control signal demodulator 207 demodulates the PDCCH S DCCU to reproduce a downlink control signal, separates therefrom a result of reproduction in which mobile station identification information corresponding to the mobile station itself is multiplexed, and outputs it as a downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU (Step S 13 ). [0189] The downlink scheduling information extracting section 208 receives the downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU as input, extracts therefrom downlink RB allocation decision information S DSCU corresponding to downlink resource allocation information, and outputs it (Step S 14 ). [0190] The maximum-number-of-frequency-blocks extracting section 209 receives the downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU as input, separates therefrom the received maximum-frequency-block signal S UDFU for the mobile station itself, and outputs it; the uplink scheduling information extracting section 210 checks a value of the allocation resolution from the received maximum-frequency-block signal S UDFU (Step S 15 - 2 ). [0191] Next, it discriminates a tree structure in the Tree-Based method from the value of the allocation resolution, identifies RBs indicated by the uplink RB allocation information in this tree structure, and outputs it as uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU (Step S 16 ). [0192] The uplink control signal generator 211 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU and downlink CQI information S DCQB as input, generates Physical Uplink Control Channel (PUCCH) S UCCU in which the downlink CQI information S DCQB is multiplexed with a predetermined resource for a control signal indicated by the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , and outputs it (Step S 17 ). [0193] The uplink RS signal generator 212 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU as input, generates an uplink RS transmit signal S URSU using a predetermined resource for RS in the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , and outputs it (Step S 18 ). [0194] The uplink data signal generator 213 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU as input, generates Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) S UDCU using a predetermined resource for a data signal in the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , and outputs it (Step S 19 ). [0195] The multiplexer 214 receives the PUCCH S UCCU , uplink RS transmit signal S URSU , PUSCH S UDCU and downlink control signal decision signal S DAKU as input, and multiplexes these signals to generate a mobile station multiplexed signal S MUXU ; the transmitter 215 transmits the mobile station transmit signal S MUXU to the base station 100 (Step S 20 ). [0196] While a case in which the maximum number of frequency blocks is incorporated in UL Scheduling Grant has been addressed in the description above, the maximum number of frequency blocks is notified by a signal mapped to Physical Downlink Shared Channel (PDSCH), which is generally referred to as Physical Broadcast Channel (PBCH) or Dynamic Broadcast Channel (DBCH), in a case that the maximum number of frequency blocks is determined as a cell-specific value. Moreover, for a UE-specific case, it is notified by information on Higher layer signaling mapped to PDSCH. In such a case, there is no need to incorporate the maximum number of frequency blocks into UL Scheduling Grant. [0197] Moreover, while a case in which the maximum number of frequency blocks is incorporated in UL Scheduling Grant has been addressed in the description above, information on the allocation resolution, in place of the maximum number of frequency blocks, may be incorporated. In this case, the uplink scheduling information extracting section 210 is configured to extract UL Scheduling Grant from the downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU to discriminate the allocation resolution. [0198] A case in which the maximum frequency block is determined in accordance with uplink CQI has been addressed in the description above; now another method for determining a maximum frequency block will be described below. [0199] First, a configuration will be described in which the maximum-number-of-frequency-blocks determining section determines the maximum number of frequency blocks according to the location of the mobile station and base station. [0200] FIG. 16 shows a block diagram of a base station 100 for determining the maximum number of frequency blocks according to the location of the mobile station and base station. [0201] In the base station 100 , the uplink control signal demodulator 109 demodulates PUCCH S UCCB , and outputs a downlink CQI measurement signal S UCQB , which is a result of measurement of downlink CQI transmitted by a plurality of mobile stations, and received mobile station localization information S ULCB representing the location of the mobile station. [0202] A maximum-number-of-frequency-blocks determining section 105 - 1 receives the received mobile station localization information S ULCB as input, determines a maximum number of frequency blocks in frequency resources to be allocated to each mobile station from the location of the mobile station represented by the received mobile station localization information S ULCB , generates a maximum-frequency-block signal S UDFB for each mobile station, and outputs it. In particular, the maximum number of frequency blocks is determined and generated to have a smaller value for a user located farther away from the base station. [0203] FIG. 17 shows a block diagram of a mobile station 200 when a maximum number of frequency blocks is determined in accordance with the location of the mobile station and base station. [0204] In the mobile station 200 , a localizing section 416 has a function of locating the mobile station using a signal from a GPS signal satellite, and it receives a signal from the GPS satellite, locates the mobile station 200 , generates mobile station localization information S ULCU , and outputs it. [0205] An uplink control signal generator 211 - 1 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , downlink CQI information S DCQB , and mobile station localization information S ULCU as input, generates PUCCH S UCCU using a predetermined resource for a control signal in resources indicated by the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU along with the downlink CQI information S DCQB and mobile station localization information S ULCU , and outputs it. [0206] By the aforementioned configuration, RBs are allocated with a lower allocation resolution to a mobile station having a smaller maximum number of frequency blocks, and with a higher allocation resolution to a mobile station having a larger maximum number of frequency blocks. [0207] Subsequently, a case will be described in which the maximum-number-of-frequency-blocks determining section determines a maximum number of frequency blocks in accordance with the power headroom, which represents an increasable transmit power in a mobile station. [0208] FIG. 18 shows a block diagram of a base station 100 in which the maximum number of frequency blocks is determined in accordance with the power headroom, which represents an increasable transmit power in a mobile station. [0209] In the base station 100 , an uplink transmit power determining section 517 receives the uplink CQI information S UCQB as input, calculates a transmit power value for the mobile station required to satisfy a required receive power, generates uplink transmit power setting information S UPWB , and outputs it. [0210] The uplink control signal demodulator 109 demodulates the uplink control signal S UCCB , and outputs a downlink CQI measurement signal S DCQB , which is a result of measurement of downlink CQI transmitted by a plurality of mobile stations, and mobile station power headroom received information S UHRB . [0211] A maximum-number-of-frequency-blocks determining section 105 - 2 receives the power headroom received information S UHRB as input, determines a maximum number of frequency blocks in frequency resources to be allocated to each mobile station based on the power headroom received information S UHRB , generates a maximum-frequency-block signal S UDFB for the mobile station, and outputs it. In particular, for example, setting the initial value of the maximum number of frequency blocks as one, and in a case that the value represented by the power headroom received information S UHRB exceeds a threshold electric power P DFUP (P DFUP is a positive real number), the value of the maximum number of frequency blocks is incremented by one. In a case that the value represented by the power headroom received information S UHRB is zero and the maximum number of frequency blocks is two or more, the value of the maximum number of frequency blocks is decremented by one. That is, in a case that the transmit power has an extra capacity, the maximum number of frequency blocks is increased to increase the number of allocatable frequency blocks, and enhance the gain in frequency domain channel dependent scheduling. In a case that the transmit power has no extra capacity and is power-limited, the maximum number of frequency blocks is reduced to transmit signals with higher electric power density. [0212] The downlink control signal generator 511 receives the mobile station identification information S UIDB , UL Scheduling Grant S USCB , DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB , maximum-frequency-block signal S UDFB and uplink transmit power setting information S UPWB as input, generates a downlink control signal in which these signals are multiplexed as PDCCH S DCCB , and outputs it. [0213] FIG. 19 shows a block diagram of a mobile station 200 in which the maximum number of frequency blocks is determined in accordance with the power headroom, which represents an increasable transmit power in the mobile station. [0214] In the mobile station 200 , an uplink transmit power information extracting section 616 extracts, from the downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU , received uplink transmit power setting value information S UPWU that represents the uplink transmit power value in the mobile station and is notified by the base station, and outputs it. [0215] A power headroom calculating section 617 receives the received uplink transmit power setting value information S UPWU as input, subtracts the received uplink transmit power setting value information S UPWU from the maximum transmit power value transmittable by the mobile station, and outputs the resulting value as mobile station power headroom information S UHRU . The mobile station power headroom information S UHRU represents the remaining electric power with which the mobile station can perform additional transmission after transmission with an electric power represented by the received uplink transmit power setting value information S UPWU . [0216] An uplink control signal generator 211 - 2 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , downlink CQI information S DCQB , and mobile station power headroom information S UHRU as input, generates PUCCH S UCCU using a predetermined resource for a control signal in resources represented by the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU along with the downlink CQI information S UCQB and mobile station power headroom information S UHRU , and outputs it. [0217] By the aforementioned configuration, RBs are allocated with a lower allocation resolution to a mobile station having a smaller maximum number of frequency blocks, and with a higher allocation resolution to a mobile station having a larger maximum number of frequency blocks. [0218] As described above, in accordance with the present embodiment, in the Tree-Based method, RBs are allocated with a lower allocation resolution to a mobile station having a smaller maximum number of frequency blocks, and with a higher allocation resolution to a mobile station having a larger maximum number of frequency blocks, so that an increase in the amount of signaling due to an increase of the number of frequency blocks can be prevented. Fourth Embodiment [0219] The first and second embodiments have addressed a case in which an allocation resolution is determined in accordance with the number of frequency blocks determined by the scheduler, and the third embodiment has addressed a case in which an allocation resolution is determined in accordance with the maximum number of frequency blocks determined by the maximum-number-of-frequency-blocks determining section. The following embodiment is characterized in checking a sequence of resource blocks allocated in accordance with any one of the embodiments described above, and in a case that transmission may be made with a number of bits smaller than that for determining information representing the allocated resource blocks, performing transmission with a smaller number of bits. It should be noted that components similar to those in the foregoing embodiment are designated by similar reference numerals and detailed description thereof will be omitted. [0220] For example, assuming that the number of frequency blocks or maximum number of frequency blocks is one, the allocation resolution is set as one with reference to the correspondence table in FIG. 3 . Now assume that as a result of an act of the scheduler allocating resource blocks with a number of frequency blocks of one and an allocation resolution of one, resource blocks at positions numbered “2,” “3,” “4” and “5” are allocated as shown in FIG. 20 . In this case, according to the embodiments described above, a value “32” within 1-55 (six bits) is used to make denotation in the Tree-Based method. [0221] However, in actuality, as shown in FIG. 21 , it may be denoted in the Tree-Based method using a value “6” within 1-15 that can be denoted by four bits. In other words, resource block allocation may be denoted in the Tree-Based method with a smaller number of bits. [0222] The uplink scheduler 104 in the present embodiment checks a sequence of allocated resource blocks, and in a case that transmission may be made with a number of bits smaller than that for determining information representing the allocated resource blocks, updates the value of the allocation resolution determined once and outputs UL Scheduling Grant in a number of bits in accordance with the updated value of the allocation resolution. [0223] Subsequently, an operation of the present embodiment will be described with reference to a flow chart in FIG. 22 . While the following description will be made with reference to the first embodiment, it may be based on the third embodiment. [0224] The receiver 101 in the base station 100 receives a signal from the mobile station 200 , establishes uplink synchronization using a guard interval, and outputs a base station receive signal S RXB , (Step S 1 ). [0225] The uplink RS (Reference Signal) separator 102 separates from the output base station receive signal S RXB an uplink RS signal S URSB in which uplink RS signals from a plurality of mobile stations are multiplexed, and outputs it (Step S 2 ). [0226] From the uplink RS signals S URSB for a plurality of mobile stations, the uplink CQI measurement section 103 calculates CQI (Channel Quality Indicator) for each mobile station on an RB-by-RB basis, and outputs it as uplink CQI information S UCQB (Step S 3 ). [0227] The uplink scheduler 104 determines a number of frequency blocks for resources to be allocated to each mobile station based on the uplink CQI information S UCQB for each mobile station (Step S 4 ). An allocation resolution correlated with the determined number of frequency blocks is determined using the correspondence table as shown in FIG. 3 kept in the equipment itself (Step S 5 ). [0228] RBs are allocated with resource blocks in a number equal to the determined allocation resolution and with the determined number of frequency blocks (Step S 6 ). [0229] From a sequence of the allocated RBs, decision is made as to whether transmission may be made with a number of bits smaller than that for determining information representing the allocated resource blocks (Step S 21 ). In a case that transmission may be made with a number of bits smaller than that for determining information representing the allocated resource blocks, the value of the allocation resolution determined once is updated, and the number of bits is set to that in accordance with the allocation resolution from the updated number of bits for UL Scheduling Grant (Step S 22 ). On the other hand, in a case that transmission cannot be made with a number of bits smaller than that for determining information representing the allocated resource blocks, the flow goes to Step S 7 - 1 . [0230] Next, the uplink scheduler 104 outputs scheduling information representing positions of the allocated RBs and value of the allocation resolution in a specified number of bits as UL Scheduling Grant S USCB , and outputs the number of frequency blocks as S UDFB (Step S 7 - 1 ). [0231] The downlink control signal generator 111 is supplied as input with the UL Scheduling Grant S USCB , DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB , mobile station identification information S UIDB and frequency block signal S UDFB , multiplexes these input signals to generate a downlink control signal as PDCCH (Physical Downlink Control Channel) S DCCB , and outputs it (Step S 8 ). [0232] The downlink RS signal generator 112 generates a downlink RS signal as a downlink RS signal S DRSB ; the downlink data signal generator 113 multiplexes downlink data signals from a plurality of mobile stations together in accordance with an RB pattern indicated by the DL Scheduling Grant S DSCB , generates Physical Downlink Shared Channel (PDSCH) S DDCB , and outputs it (Step S 9 ). [0233] The multiplexer 114 receives the PDCCH S DCCB , RS signal S DRSB and PDSCH S DDCB as input, and multiplexes these signals to generate a downlink multiplexed signal S MUXB ; the transmitter 115 generates a transmit signal S TXB from the downlink multiplexed signal S MUXB , and transmits it (Step S 10 ). [0234] The receiver 201 in the mobile station 200 receives a signal from the base station 100 , establishes downlink synchronization using a guard interval, and outputs a mobile station receive signal S RXU (Step S 11 ). [0235] The downlink RS (Reference Signal) separator 202 receives the mobile station receive signal S RXU as input, separates therefrom a downlink RS signal S DRSU in which the downlink RS signals are multiplexed, and outputs it; the downlink CQI measurement section 203 calculates CQI from the downlink RS signal S DRSU on an RB-by-RB basis, and outputs it as downlink CQI information S DCQB (Step S 12 ). [0236] The downlink control signal separator 206 receives the mobile station receive signal S RXU as input, and separates therefrom PDCCH S DCCU in which downlink control signals from a plurality of mobile stations are multiplexed; the downlink control signal demodulator 207 demodulates the PDCCH S DCCU to reproduce a downlink control signal, separates therefrom a result of reproduction in which mobile station identification information corresponding to the mobile station itself is multiplexed, and outputs it as a downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU (Step S 13 ). [0237] The downlink scheduling information extracting section 208 receives the downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU as input, extracts therefrom downlink RB allocation decision information S DSCU corresponding to downlink resource allocation information, and outputs it (Step S 14 ). [0238] The uplink scheduling information extracting section 210 extracts, from the downlink control reproduced signal S DCMU , UL Scheduling Grant, which represents information on allocated uplink RBs, and checks the value of the allocation resolution (Step S 15 ). [0239] Next, it discriminates a tree structure in the Tree-Based method from the value of the allocation resolution, identifies RBs indicated by the uplink RB allocation information in this tree structure, and outputs it as uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU (Step S 16 ). [0240] The uplink control signal generator 211 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU and downlink CQI information S DCQB as input, generates Physical Uplink Control Channel (PUCCH) S UCCU in which the downlink CQI information S DCQB is multiplexed with a predetermined resource for a control signal indicated by the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , and outputs it (Step S 17 ). [0241] The uplink RS signal generator 212 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU as input, generates an uplink RS transmit signal S URSU using a predetermined resource for RS in the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , and outputs it (Step S 18 ). [0242] The uplink data signal generator 213 receives the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU as input, generates Physical Uplink Shared Channel (PUSCH) S UDCU using a predetermined resource for a data signal in the uplink RB allocation decision information S USCU , and outputs it (Step S 19 ). [0243] The multiplexer 214 receives the PUCCH S UCCU , uplink RS transmit signal S URSU , PUSCH S UDCU and downlink control signal decision signal S DAKU as input, and multiplexes these signals to generate a mobile station multiplexed signal S MUXU ; the transmitter 215 transmits the mobile station transmit signal S MUXU to the base station 100 (Step S 20 ). [0244] While the explanation has been made in the preceding description with reference to a configuration in which, after allocating resource blocks with a determined allocation resolution, a check is made as to whether information representing the allocated resource blocks can be transmitted with a smaller number of bits, another configuration may be contemplated in which, after simply allocating resource blocks, a check is made as to whether information representing the allocated resource blocks can be transmitted with a smaller number of bits. [0245] According to the present embodiment, since a sequence of allocated resource blocks is checked to confirm whether transmission may be made with a smaller number of bits than that for determining information representing the allocated resource blocks, UL Scheduling Grant can be reliably transmitted with a smaller number of bits. [0246] While a mode in which uplink resource blocks are allocated has been described in the embodiments above, the mode may be one such that downlink resource blocks are allocated. In such a case, the number of frequency blocks or maximum number of frequency blocks may be information varying in accordance with a communication environment, such as, for example, the cell size, system bandwidth, coverage of a base station, channel quality information measured by a downlink reference signal, bandwidth of downlink data signals, and number of levels in multi-level modulation for downlink data signals, or code rate. Moreover, since the aforementioned cell size is determined by information affecting the communication environment such as the location of a base station, distance between base stations, and interference power, the number of frequency blocks may be selected using such information. [0247] Furthermore, a mode in which the mode of allocating uplink resource blocks is combined with the mode of allocating downlink resource blocks may be contemplated. [0248] In addition, while it is possible to configure the mobile station and base station in the present invention described above by hardware, they may be implemented by a computer program as obvious from the preceding description. [0249] A processor operated by programs stored in a program memory implements functions and operations similar to those in the embodiments described above. It should be noted that part of functions of the embodiments described above may be implemented by a computer program. [0250] While the present invention has been described with reference to several embodiments, it is not limited thereto. Various modifications that those skilled in the art can appreciate may be made to the configuration or details of the present invention within a scope of the present invention. [0251] The present application claims priority based on Japanese Patent Application No. 2008-161752 filed on Jun. 20, 2008, disclosure of which is incorporated herein in its entirety.
