Let G be a connected reductive split group of adjoint type over p-adic field. After constructing the building $$X=X(G)$$ (following Bruhat-Tits), the author introduces a compactification of X analogous to the Satake compactification of a symmetric space, then he defines harmonic functions and shows, in certain cases, that they are defined by their boundary values on the distinguished boundary.
