There is no commonly accepted notion of a classical analogue for quantum fermions. One recipe amounts to a formal limit in relevant formulas, like Hartree or Thomas-Fermi type equations. The main objective of the paper is to give lattice random variable model that mimics the behaviour expected from “classical fermions” and gives rise to formulas obtained in the semiclassical limit. Equilibrium distributions are utilized. It is found that a second-order phase transition is possible, corresponding to that from the superconductive to the normal state of matter.
