Number fields were drawn from the following sources.

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 ].

Data on class groups of quadratic imaginary fields was computed by A. Mosunov and M. J. Jacobson, Jr.

With the exception of the computation of class group data for quadratic imaginary fields, the computation of data for the number field section of the LMFDB was carried out by John Jones.

Initial page design was by Henri Cohen and John Cremona, with subsequent changes by John Jones.
