Certain irregularities have been observed in the formation of probability matrices when applying our method for calculating the coincident summing effects occurringin the gamma spectroscopy of radionuclides. They have to do with the fact that, at certain energy levels, transition intensities are not balanced. As this affects the accuracy of our calculation, we have examined the source of those irregularities. This paper presents comments on the evaluation of the152Eu decay data. The paper offers an analysis of the errors and mistakes that the evaluators have made, in order to facilitate the future work in gamma spectroscopy.
