A Monte Carlo method is presented for the calculation of the self absorption of γ radiation in an inclined cylindrical source and for the calculation of the solid angle of the source subtended by a cylindrical detector. The source is centered on the symmetry axis of the detector and can be rotated through an angle from 0° to 90° around an axis perpendicular to the detector axis. Typical corrections to angular correlation measurements in multi-detector goniometers are presented and discussed.
