I will present a variation of positive model theory which addresses the issues of approximations of conventional geometric structures by sequences of Zariski structures as well as approximation by sequences of finite structures. In particular I am interested in applications to quantum mechanics.

I will report on a progress in defining and calculating oscillating in- tegrals of importance in quantum physics. This is based on calculating Gauss sums of order higher or equal to 2 over rings Z/mfor very specific m
