In the case where G= SL 2 (F) for a non-archimedean local field F and Γ is a discrete torsion-free cocompact subgroup of G, there is a known relationship between the Ihara zeta function for the quotient of the Bruhat–Tits tree of G by the action of Γ, and an alternating product of determinants of twisted Poincaré series for parabolic subgroups of the affine Weyl group of G. We show how this can be generalized to other split simple algebraic groups of rank two over F and formulate a conjecture about how this might be generalized to groups of higher rank.
