On the distribution of the values of symmetric square Lfunctions in the half plane 
Let L_{sym2(f)}(s) be the symmetric square Lfunction associated to a newform of weight 2 and level N. We will derive an asymptotic formula for the average values of L_{sym2(f)}(s) at a point s_{0} in the half plane . Assuming the Riemann hypothesis for the Riemann zeta function, we are able to extend our result to the half plane .
