In modern terms, Landau's theory of Fermi liquids is understood as the fixed point of a Wilsonian RG as one scales towards the Fermi surface.
Shankar and others use the RG interpretation to explain why Landau stopped at pairwise quasi-particle interactions in his phenomenological theory (i.e., why he didn't also include an quasi-particle vertex with 6 legs, 8 legs, etc.) This is because such interactions are irrelevant operators as one flows towards the Fermi surface, while the 4-point q.p. vertex is only marginally-irrelevant (provided there's no BCS instability).
I have 2 questions:
1) If I start with the path integral for a normal fermi system and do the Wilsonian integration of modes all the way down to the fermi surface (pretend I can do this exactly), will the action at the end of the flow literally just consist of the dressed quasi-particle energies, i.e., the term quadratic in the electron fields, plus a quartic term whose coupling corresponds to the Landau f-function (i.e., the quasiparticle interaction)? Or would it also contain higher terms containing 6,8,10, etc. fermion fields with non-vanishing couplings? If it's the latter, how do I square this with the claim that the RG treatment "explains" why Landau stopped at pairwise q.p. interactions?
2) Imagine now I have a family of unitarily-equivalent starting actions. By construction, they all describe the same physics, but they might correspond to widely separated initial points in the coupling space.
If I now do the RG flow for this family of starting actions, will the trajectories start to converge as more and more modes are integrated? My naive guess is yes, since the Landau parameters can be put in 1-to-1 correspondence with observable quantities (e.g., specific heat, etc.).
