Abstract: In this paper, criteria of divisibility of the class number of the real cyclotomic field of a prime conductor and of a prime degree by primes the order modulo of which is , are given. A corollary of these criteria is the possibility to make a computational proof that a given does not divide for any (conductor) such that both are primes. Note that on the basis of Schinzel's hypothesis there are infinitely many such primes .
