Abstract: We prove a nontrivial bound of O(D27/56+ε) for the 3part of the class number of a quadratic field (√D) by using a variant of the square sieve and the qanalogue of van der Corput's method to count the number of squares of the form 4x3  dz2 for a squarefree positive integer d and bounded x, z. © de Gruyter 2006.
