## Abstract

We have constructed a Carmichael number with 10,333,229,505 prime factors, and have also constructed Carmichael numbers with prime factors for every between 3 and 19,565,220. These computations are the product of implementations of two new algorithms for the subset product problem that exploit the non-uniform distribution of primes with the property that divides a highly composite .
