|On the distribution of the values of symmetric square L-functions in the half plane|
Let Lsym2(f)(s) be the symmetric square L-function associated to a newform of weight 2 and level N. We will derive an asymptotic formula for the average values of Lsym2(f)(s) at a point s0 in the half plane . Assuming the Riemann hypothesis for the Riemann zeta function, we are able to extend our result to the half plane .
