The processes taking place in active galactic nuclei that give rise to continuum emissions are discussed. Consideration is given to the sources in which thermal processes dominate and those which are dominated by nonthermal processes, as well as to the methods in which source properties can be deduced from millimeter and submillimeter observations. Attention is also given to sources where both thermal and nonthermal processes have to be considered, namely Seyfert-type galaxies (such as NGC 1068 and Arp 220) and radio-quiet QSOs. Possible future directions for millimeter and submillimeter observations of AGN are suggested.
