Abstract: Constructing number fields with prescribed ramification is an important problem in computational number theory. In this paper, we consider the problem of computing all imprimitive number fields of a given degree which are unramified outside of a given finite set of primes $ S$ by combining the techniques of targeted Hunter searches with Martinet's relative version of Hunter's theorem. We then carry out this algorithm to generate complete tables of imprimitive number fields for degrees $ 4$ through $ 10$ and certain sets $ S$ of small primes.
