Let $\mathbf {G}$ be a connected reductive group defined over a locally compact non-archimedean field $F$, let $\mathbf {P}$ be a parabolic subgroup with Levi $\mathbf {M}$ and compatible with a pro-$p$ Iwahori subgroup of $G ≔\mathbf {G}(F)$. Let $R$ be a commutative unital ring.

We introduce the parabolic pro-$p$ Iwahori–Hecke $R$-algebra $\mathcal {H}_R(P)$ of $P ≔\mathbf {P}(F)$ and construct two $R$-algebra morphisms $\Theta ^P_M\colon \mathcal {H}_R(P)\to \mathcal {H}_R(M)$ and $\Xi ^P_G\colon \mathcal {H}_R(P) \to \mathcal {H}_R(G)$ into the pro-$p$ Iwahori–Hecke $R$-algebra of $M ≔\mathbf {M}(F)$ and $G$, respectively. We prove that the resulting functor $\operatorname {Mod}\text {-}\mathcal {H}_R(M) \to \operatorname {Mod}\text {-}\mathcal {H}_R(G)$ from the category of right $\mathcal {H}_R(M)$-modules to the category of right $\mathcal {H}_R(G)$-modules (obtained by pulling back via $\Theta ^P_M$ and extension of scalars along $\Xi ^P_G$) coincides with the parabolic induction due to Ollivier–Vignéras.

The maps $\Theta ^P_M$ and $\Xi ^P_G$ factor through a common subalgebra $\mathcal {H}_R(M,G)$ of $\mathcal {H}_R(G)$ which is very similar to $\mathcal {H}_R(M)$. Studying these algebras $\mathcal {H}_R(M,G)$ for varying $(M,G)$ we prove a transitivity property for tensor products. As an application we give a new proof of the transitivity of parabolic induction.
