Abstract: In this thesis the method of bosonization of fermionic many-body systems in any number of dimensions is developed. After an introduction to the problem in chapter 1 and to the method of bosonization in chapter 2 (with its application to the non-interacting problem) the Fermi liquid behavior of interacting fermions in dimensions higher than one is discussed in chapter 3. In chapter 4 I rederive the well-known bosonization of the Tomonaga-Luttinger model in one dimension within the framework discussed in the preceding chapters. In chapter 5 I present the bosonization of elementary excitations of exactly solvable one dimensional systems with special emphasis on the Hubbard chain. Chapter 6 contains the conclusions.
