**Abstract:** Because of the lack of cusps on Shimura curves, there are few methods to construct modular forms on them. As a result, it is very difficult to determine equations of Shimura curves. In a recent work, we devised a systematic method to construct Borcherds form. Together with Schofer's formula for values of Borcherds forms at CM-points, this enabled us to determine equations of all hyperelliptic Shimura curves. This is a joint work with Jia-Wei Guo.
