Abstract.A modified Drude model for the gas of electrons in a conductor is introduced as a dynamical system of charged mass points. The passage process through a cut is studied; based on a computer experiment, a Poisson point process is proposed for the description of the passage process. Formulas for stochastic pendants of electrodynamic quantities are derived; in particular a formula for the variance of time averages of the thermal voltage at the ends of a conductor is motivated from local Ohm's law.
