In this paper we are interested in investigating the principal series representations of a certain rank 2 Kac–Moody group. This group (denoted by SL ˜2(𝔽q((z)))) is introduced as a central extension by 𝔽q* of the group of two-by-two unimodular matrices over the non-archimedean local field, 𝔽q((z)). We begin by determining a formula for a cocycle that defines this central extension. This is used to classify all irreducible representations of the centrally extended torus inside SL ˜2(𝔽q((z))) and, as a consequence of this classification, we are able to determine the irreducible unramified principal series representations of SL ˜2(𝔽q((z))).

Keywords: Principal series representations; Kac–Moody groups; central extension group; non-archimedean local field; unramified representations; unimodular matrix group
