TExperiments on quantum degenerate Fermi gases of magnetic atoms and dipolar molecules begin to probe their broken symmetry phases dominated by the long-range,anisotropic dipole-dipole interaction. Several candidate phases including the p-wave superfluid, the stripe density wave, and a supersolid have been proposed theoretically for two-dimensional spinless dipolar Fermi gases. Yet the phase boundaries predicted by different approximations vary greatly, and a definitive phase diagram is still lacking.In this talk I will introduce a theory that treats all competing many-body instabilities in the particle-particle and particle-hole channel on equal footing. Then I will present the low temperature phase diagram obtained from numerical solution of the functional renormalization-group flow equations. In particular we find a nontrivial density wave phase at small dipolar tilting angles and strong interactions, but no evidence of the supersolid phase. The critical temperatures of the ordered phases are also estimated.
