Number fields were drawn from the following sources.

  • The PARI database from the Bordeaux PARI group [pari.math.u-bordeaux.fr/pub/numberfields/], which in turn, was a combination of work by several authors:

    Complete lists of global number fields were computed using two techniques, Hunter searches (see Section 9.3 of [MR:1728313, 10.1007/978-1-4419-8489-0]) and class field theory (see Chapter 5 and Section 9.2 of [MR:1728313, 10.1007/978-1-4419-8489-0]). Hunter searches are named for named for John Hunter [MR:0091309], whose technique was refined significantly by M. Pohst [MR:0644904]. In some cases, the Hunter searches are "targeted" in that they focused on specific prime ramification [MR:1986816, 10.1090/S0025-5718-03-01510-2].
