In this paper, we compute the one-level density and the two-level density for low-lying zeros of some families of symmetric power L-functions in the level aspect. These families are built according to the value of the sign of the functional equation. As a consequence, we completely determine the symmetry types of these families.


The main technical ingredients are some large sieve inequalities for Kloosterman sums and Riemann-von Mangoldt’s explicit formula.


We also compute the moments of the one-level density and produces a new instance for Hughes-Rudnick’s mock Gaussian behaviour. This result relies on heavy combinatorial arguments.
