The functional equation governing the renormalization flow of fermionic field theories is investigated in (Formula presented.) dimensions without introducing auxiliary Bose fields on the example of the Gross–Neveu and the Nambu–Jona-Lasinio model. The UV-safe fixed points and the eigenvectors of the renormalization group equations linearized around them are found in the local potential approximation. The results are compared carefully with those obtained with partial bosonization. The results do not receive any correction in the next-to-leading order approximation of the gradient expansion of the effective action.
