Abstract: The observed properties of supermassive black holes suggest a fundamental link between their assembly and the formation of their host spheroids. We model the growth and activity of black holes in galaxies using LambdaCDM cosmological hydrodynamic simulations. We study the evolution of the metal enrichment in quasar hosts and hence explore the relationship between star/spheroid formation and black hole growth/activity in galaxies. Using the simulations we approach the epoch of the first quasars and the first significant star formation activity.
