Abstract: Let $ G$ be a reductive $ \mathfrak{p}$-adic group, $ K$ a good maximal compact subgroup, $ {K_1} \subset K$ any open subgroup, and $ \pi $ an admissible representation of $ G$ of finite type. In A submersion principle and its applications, Harish-Chandra proves the theorem that $ \int_K {\pi (kg{k^{ - 1}})\,dk} $ is a finite-rank operator for $ g$ in the regular set $ G'$ in order to show that the character $ {\Theta _\pi }(g)$ is a locally constant class function on $ G'$. From this, the authors derive the formula $ \theta (1){\Theta _\pi }(g) = d(\pi )\int_{G/Z} {\int_{{K_1}} {\theta (xkg{k^{ - 1}}{x^{ - 1}})\,dk\,d\dot x} \quad (g \in G')} $ for any $ K$-finite matrix coefficient $ \theta $ of a discrete series representation $ \pi $ with formal degree $ d(\pi )$. They use another technical result of the paper to prove that invariant integrals of Schwartz space functions converge absolutely. None of these results depends upon a characteristic zero assumption.
