This chapter reviews here the two-parameter scaling theory of the dirty Fermi-liquid. The chapter shows that this theory captures both quantitatively (for small disorder) and qualitatively (for large disorder) the physics of the Metal-Insulator Transition observed in two-dimensional electron systems.

Keywords: Metal-Insulator Transition; quantum critical point; Fermi-liquid; renormalization; diffusion; electron interactions
