Following the works of Bump and Ginzburg and of Takeda, we develop a theory of twisted symmetric square L-functions for GL n. We characterize their pole in terms of certain trilinear period integrals, determine all irreducible summands of the discrete spectrum of GL n having nonvanishing trilinear periods, and construct nonzero local invariant trilinear forms on a certain family of induced representations.
