Lecture on Fermi liquid theory

Last week I gave a single lecture on Fermi liquids to the honours year undergraduate course PHYS4030 Condensed Matter Physics.
The slides do not include the expression for the quasi-particle lifetime or the rough argument  (based on phase space considerations) used to justify its form. This is because I do that on the whiteboard.
Perhaps such an important topic justifies more than one lecture...
