Hi,

The cell-edge user is restricted to 4-QAM (QPSK), while the cell-center user can be 4-QAM, 16-QAM, or 64-QAM.

The choice of c and d depends the modulation combination (4-QAM with 4-QAM, 4-QAM with 16-QAM, etc) and the MUSTIdx. Those can be found in the standardization link I posted above (on page 147 “7 Generic functions”). For each combination, you can find a table that specifies the values for c and d.

Best,
Bashar
