Abstract. We present a simplification of Lieb's proof of the flux phase conjecture for interacting fermion systems --- such as the Hubbard model ---, at half filling on a general class of graphs. The main ingredient is a procedure which transforms a class of fermionic Hamiltonians into reflection positive form. The method can also be applied to other problems, which we briefly illustrate with two examples concerning the $t-V$ model and an extended Falicov-Kimball model.
