Abstract: We prove general reflection positivity results for both scalar fields and Dirac fields on a Riemannian manifold, and comment on applications to quantum field theory. As another application, we prove the inequality \(C_D \leq C_N\) between Dirichlet and Neumann covariance operators on a manifold with a reflection.
