We analyze how the logarithmic renormalizations in the Cooper channel affect the nonanalytic temperature dependence of the specific heat coefficient γ (T) -γ (0) =A (T) T in a two-dimensional Fermi liquid. We show that A (T) is expressed exactly in terms of the fully renormalized backscattering amplitude, which includes the renormalization in the Cooper channel. In contrast to the one-dimensional case, both charge and spin components of the backscattering amplitudes are subject to this renormalization. We show that the logarithmic renormalization of the charge amplitude vanishes for a flat Fermi surface when the system becomes effectively one dimensional.
