Abstract: Let $ S$ be a nonsingular complex algebraic variety and $ \mathcal{V}$ a polarized variation of Hodge structure of weight $ 2p$ with polarization form $ Q$. Given an integer $ K$, let $ {S^{(K)}}$ be the space of pairs $ (s,u)$ with $ s \in S$, $ u \in {\mathcal{V}_s}$ integral of type $ (p,p)$, and $ Q(u,u) \leq K$. We show in Theorem 1.1 that $ {S^{(K)}}$ is an algebraic variety, finite over $ S$. When $ \mathcal{V}$ is the local system $ {H^{2p}}({X_s},\mathbb{Z})$/torsion associated with a family of nonsingular projective varieties parametrized by $ S$, the result implies that the locus where a given integral class of type $ (p,p)$ remains of type $ (p,p)$ is algebraic.
