Is there a way to reduce a set of nodes to a single customized node. I am needing to put some mathematical expression and when I do it using the node editor (in animation node) the whole tree looks quite clumsy and it becomes quite unreadable. the node tree

make group

This is quite simple. All you have to do is to create a group from the nodes.

Simple example:

Say you have some fancy node setup:

enter image description here

To group these nodes, select those you want to group (press B to border select ). Then in the nodes menu select Node > Make Group (or press Ctrl+G):

enter image description here

After having created the group, connect the input sockets you want to have as input (here the color to diffuse shader):

enter image description here

To get out of your group click on the little up arrow at the bottom:

enter image description here

(Or press the Tab key)

Et voilà, you have a fancy shader:

enter image description here

Hope that helps
