For a certain class of locally profinite groups, we show that an irreducible smooth discrete series representation is necessarily supercuspidal and, more strongly, can be obtained by induction from a linear character of a suitable open and compact modulo center subgroup. If F is a non-Archimedean local field, then our class of groups includes the groups of F-points of unipotent algebraic groups defined over F. We therefore recover earlier results of van Dijk and Corwin.
Keywords: p-adic group, locally profinite group, nilpotent group, discrete series, supercuspidal representation.
