Abstract: For $ K$ a number field and $ {\mathbf{p}}$ a finite prime of $ K$, we define a $ {\mathbf{p}}$-adic hyperbolic plane and study its geometry under the action of $ G{L_2}({K_{\mathbf{p}}})$. Seeking an operator with properties analogous to those of the non-Euclidean Laplacian of the classical hyperbolic plane, we investigate the fundamental invariant integral operator, the Hecke operator $ {T_{\mathbf{p}}}$. Letting $ S$ be a finite set of primes of a totally real $ K$ (including all the infinite ones), a modular group $ \Gamma (S)$ is defined. This group acts discontinuously on a product of classical and $ {\mathbf{p}}$-adic hyperbolic planes. $ S$-modular forms and their associated Dirichlet series are studied.
