Using N-body simulations, the dynamical interactions between supermassive black holes and host galaxies are studied. The stellar responses, velocity dispersions, and the orbits of supermassive black holes are determined and their implications will be discussed. Moreover, the formation of binary supermassive black holes during galactic mergers will also be modeled with the goal to explain those observed systems with double supermassive black holes.
