Using the results of the preceding paper, it is shown that a large class of the conclusions of the Landau theory of Fermi liquids may be established within the framework of many-body perturbation theory. Both equilibrium and transport phenomena are discussed. The theory is also carried out for long-ranged Coulomb forces. Finally, it is shown that a rather simple general expression for the quasi-particle distribution function of Landau may be given.
