Recent progress in flux phases is reviewed. First numerical evidence favors a conjecture, due to Wiegmann, that a state with a flux per plaquette equal to the electron density has the lowest energy for a n.n. tightbinding model on a square lattice. The t — J model is examined using a renormalized mean field theory and shown to have an instability towards flux phases at large enough J/t. These flux states have a collective gauge variable and exhibit superconducting properties.
