Summary:  In this paper we show that the Samuel multiplicity of a lower semi-Fredholm tuple $T \in L(X)^n$ of commuting bounded operators on a complex Banach space $X$ coincides with the generic dimension of the last cohomology groups $H^n(z-T,X)$ of its Koszul complex near $z = 0.$ As applications we show that the algebraic and analytic Samuel multiplicities of $T$ coincide and that the Samuel multiplicity is additive for closed invariant subspaces of the symmetric Fock space.
