We study the class number of an indefinite binary quadratic form of discriminant d based on the expansion of √d into a continued fraction and single out sequences of d for which h(d) has a lower-bound extimate. Progress is made for the conjecture on the estimate of the quantity of prime discriminants d with fixed length of period of expansion of √d. Bibliography: 15 titles.
