i have 72 node ( 1, ...,72 )
each node have a value between 0-1
i want calculate average each node become 1 cell
i know the coordinate (geometry ) of my cell and node
how to make it simple without manual input

i have grid 5x5x1 so total cells 25 and node 72.
i coupling another simulation that he's output is in node
according to FVM cell center,
example
for cell no 1 have number of node 0 1 10 11 36 37 46 47
cell no 2 have number of node 1 2 9 10 37 38 45 46
assume each node has value
node 0 = 0.5
node 1 = 1
node 10 = 0.2 etc
so i can define value in cell center is (0.5+1+0.2+...)/8

You can use mean right?

for 25 cell its okay
but next i have 1000 cells, so its impossible if by manual input. this is using VTK Unstructurd grid

I got the problem..I think you want to do the following.
node_vals = A(:,3) ; % node values
cells = A(:,7) ; % cells
nodes = A(:,8:15) ; % respective nodes in cells
% Remove the nans
cells(isnan(cells(:,1)),:) = [] ; % remove the nans in the cells (this is due to your file pattern)
nodes(isnan(nodes(:,1)),:) = [] ; % remove the nans in the cells (this is due to your file pattern)
% GEt the average
N = length(cells) ;
iwant = zeros(N,1) ;
for i = 1:N
iwant(i) = mean(node_vals(nodes(i,:)+1)) ; % i is added because, node has 0, and MATLAB index starts with 1
end
