Recently the Event Horizon Telescope has presented a ring-like emission structure of M87 and our galactic center Sgr A* at 1.3mm with unprecedented angular resolutions. These images are consistent with the size and shape of the lensed photon orbit encircling the “shadow” of a supermassive black hole. In this talk, I would like to overview the theoretical interpretation of EHT results of M87, and present the recent progress of theoretical modeling by state-of-the-art numerical simulations of magnetized accretion flows onto a black hole. I also discuss the numerical modeling of relativistic jets and comparison with the observations at mm-wavelength.
