We present a general formalism for the variational calculation of the one-body density-matrix and correlation functions for strongly correlated lattice electrons in terms of the Fermi hypernetted-chain (FHNC) diagrammatic expansion. It is shown that, in the limit of infinite spatial dimensions, the local-field-approximate FHNC scheme yields the exact solution for the Gutzwiller wave function, which is equivalent to the result of the Gutzwiller approximation.
