The paper continues the author’s investigations [I. A. Mel’nikova, Math. Notes 58, No. 6, 1302-1305 (1995); translation from Mat. Zametki 58, No. 6, 872-877 (1995; Zbl 0857.57030); Russ. Math. Surv. 50, No. 2, 444-445 (1995); translation from Usp. Mat. Nauk 50, No. 3, 217-218 (1995; Zbl 0859.58005)] in which the compactness problem for the Morse form foliation on a closed manifold \(M^n\) is considered. The author discusses the problem of calculation of the maximal isotropic subgroup in \(H_{n-1}(M)\) with respect to the operation of intersection of homology classes. The upper and lower estimates are established and some examples are considered when \(M=T^n\) is an \(n\)-dimensional torus and \(M=M^2_g\).
