### Minimal resolution of Log del Pezzo surfaces

Suppose $X$ is a log del pezzo projective surface of index $l$. As far as I understand it will have a finite number of singular points all of which can be resolved by sucessive blow-ups.
Let $E_i$ be ...

### Is there a Serre Tor formula for nonproper intersections?

Background: Let $X$ be a smooth complex projective algebraic variety, and let $V$ and $W$ be closed subvarieties. For simplicity, let's assume that $\dim V+\dim W=\dim X$.
Now Serre's famous Tor ...
