Non-trader question: Where/is the stock market centralized?

I understand the basic premise of supply/demand, and WHY the values change. I am more confused on HOW the values change.

Is there a central program/algorithm/company that oversees the changing of stock prices? Has it ever been "hacked" or interfered with? Hope I am explaining this question properly.
