The tight correlation between black hole mass and velocity dispersion of
galactic bulges is strong evidence that the formation of galaxies and
supermassive black holes are closely linked. I review the modeling of the joint
formation of galaxies and their central supermassive black holes in the context
of the hierarchical structure formation paradigm.
