Abstract: Five different numerical algorithms used for calculating coincidence summing corrections (CSCs) in HPGe gamma-spectrometry in the case of complex radionuclide decay schemes were tested for their equivalence. Simulated point source detection geometries and efficiency curves have been used to calculate and compare counting rates as well as CSCs of 133Ba, 134Cs and 152Eu of 1 MBq sources, respectively. Contributions of one X-ray per radionuclide were included. The algorithms were found to give identical results within their respective presuppositions.
