In LTE-A UE performs attach at primary cell and gets the secondary cell information through rrc reconfiguration. Then eNB can activate/deactivate secondary cell by sending Mac ce to UE. ENB can perform scheduling for secondary cell when it is active. ENB can perform cross carrier scheduling or with out cross carrier scheduling.
In cross carrier scheduling UE needs to monitor Pdcch at pcell to know the scheduling of pcell and scell.
Without cross carrier scheduling, UE need to monitor pdcch at pcell as well as at active scell to know the scheduling.

An UE configured for carrier aggregation, may have different radio channel conditions for primary and secondary cells.
I meant to say, primary cell may have strong signal strength at the same time UE may observed secondary cell(s) not too good.
In this case, does the same modulation and coding schemes used for primary and secondary or may use different coding and modulation schemes for different channels for the same sub frame?

Does really resource allocation happen in such a way ? When the number of allocated sub carriers may be different from first slot to second slot.

If my understaing is correct then in case of carrier aggregation(CA), an UE can connect to multiple cells. One of the cell is known as primary cell while other cells are known as secondary cells. Primary cell physical layer failure is detected based on the receiving N310 consecutive "out of sync". Is the same case applicable for secondary cells as well ?
