Abstract/Description: This dissertation studies certain intersection numbers of exceptional divisions arising from blowing up subspaces of lattices associated to graphs. These permit the computation of the Segre class of a scheme associated to the graph/lattice. Explicit formulas are provided for lattices associated to trees and several patterns among these numbers are explored. The problem can be related to the study of so-called Cremona transformations. It is shown that the geometry of such transformations explain a certain symmetry pattern we discovered.
