my matrix is M(x,y,z) where:
and I need to convert M into N(x,c).
Any ideas?

consider a 2D example:
M=[1 2 3
4 5 6
7 8 9];
There are the same number of rows and columns ([1 2 3]). What would it mean if I reduce this to a single variable? Should M only keep 3 values? Should I have 9 options for the new parameter? These questions need to be answered for your situation as well.
I also suspect that length(c)=y*z, still need to know how to do it.
No, length of y and z are the same and y./z would have the same length.
Some of what you wrote does not seem to make sense until you start talking about grids of data, but then you have to ask about the sizes of the grids.

Ufun = @(X,Y,Z) X;
Vfun = @(X,Y,Z) Y./(Z+200);
[X,Y,Z] = ndgrid(x,y,z);
U = Ufun(X,Y,Z);
V = Vfun(X,Y,Z);
U = U(:);
V = V(:);
[umin,umax] = bounds(U);
nu = 21;
u = linspace(umin,umax,nu);
[vmin,vmax] = bounds(V);
nv = 21;
v = linspace(vmin,vmax,nv);
[~,~,I] = histcounts(U,u);
[~,~,J] = histcounts(V,v);
N = accumarray([J I], M(:), [nu nv]-1, @mean, NaN);
midfun = @(x) 0.5*(x(1:end-1)+x(2:end));
u = midfun(u);
v = midfun(v);
xlabel('u (=x)');
ylabel('v (=y/(200+z)');

[X, Y, Z]=ndgrid(1:90,1:3:120,1:40);
C = round(ceil(Y./Z));
N = accumarray([X(:), C(:)], M(:), [], @mean, nan);
surf(N, 'edgecolor', 'none')
Or possibly N.' instead of N

Please explain how you want to deal with the discontinuity in the middle of y./z:
>> plot(y./z)
I may use C=((y-z)./y); main thing is to obtain the value of M at x by some ratio of y and z, so I can make surface out of it.

(y-z)/y is 1-z/y and since z and y both include 0, you still have nan and infinities.
