```Is

Sum[f[x, y, z], {z, 0, 20}, {y, 0, 20}, {x, 0, 20}]

what do you want?

Information@Sum

"Sum[f, {i, imax}] evaluates the sum of the expressions f as evaluated
for each i from 1 to imax. Sum[f, {i, imin, imax}] starts
with i = imin. Sum[f, {i, imin, imax, di}] uses steps di. Sum[f, {i,
imin, imax}, {j, jmin, jmax}, ... ] evaluates a sum over multiple
indices."

Note also the presence of NSum

Information@NSum

"NSum[f, {i, imin, imax}] gives a numerical approximation to the sum
of the expressions f as evaluated for each i from imin to \
imax. NSum[f, {i, imin, imax, di}] uses a step di in the sum."
Attributes[NSum] = {HoldAll, Protected}
Options[NSum] = {AccuracyGoal -> Infinity, Compiled -> True,
EvaluationMonitor -> None, Method -> Automatic,
NSumExtraTerms -> 12, NSumTerms -> 15, PrecisionGoal ->
Automatic, VerifyConvergence -> True,
WorkingPrecision -> MachinePrecision, WynnDegree -> 1}

By the way what language is this:
sigma(x=0..20)sigma(y=0..20)sigma(z=0..20)f(x,y,z)  ???
