Abstract: Let $G$ be a connected semisimple real Lie group with compact Cartan subgroup. Harish-Chandra gave formulas for discrete series characters which are completely explicit except for certain interger constants appearing in the numerators. The main result of this paper is a new formula for these constants using two-structures. The new formula avoids endoscopy and stable discrete series entirely, expressing (unaveraged) discrete series constants directly in terms of (unaveraged) discrete series constants corresponding to two-structures of noncompact type.
