We treat short-range correlations in nuclear matter, induced by the repulsive core of the nucleon–nucleon potential, within the framework of self-consistent Green's function theory. The effective in-medium interaction sums the ladder diagrams of both the particle–particle and hole–hole type. The demand of self-consistency results in a set of nonlinear equations which must be solved by iteration. We explore the possibility of approximating the single-particle Green's function by a limited number of poles and residues.
