This paper describes a starting point for future work on a more detailed study of early evolutionary phases of galactic nuclei. We describe a study of the evolution of star accretion onto a supermassive gaseous object in the central region of an active galactic nucleus, a problem that was previously addressed semi-analytically. For this purpose, we use a gaseous model of relaxing dense stellar systems, whose equations are solved numerically. The model is briefly described and the first model calculations for a specific case of black hole mass growth in time are given. Similar concepts will be applied in future work for a system in which a dense interstellar medium is a possible progenitor of a black hole in the galactic center.
