If S is a symbolic expression, then sexy(S) opens a small figure window (message box really) displaying the expression S in a "human-like" form.

Requires the symbolic math toolbox.

Also requires that your Matlab release support 'latex' in the 'interpreter' property of text objects, I forget which was the first release that supported this.
