We analyze the extrapolation to the thermodynamic limit of Fermi liquid properties of the homogeneous electron gas in two and three dimensions. Using field theory, we explicitly calculate finite-size effects of the total energy, the renormalization factor, and the effective mass at the Fermi surface within the random phase approximation (RPA) and discuss the validity for general metallic systems.
