Question Support for mathematical equations in PDFs

Hi everyone,

I am a student and have to read a lot of PDFs, some of which are journal papers and include mathematical equations and symbols. I am thinking of getting an Amazon Kindle 3, and I wanted to ask how good support is for displaying mathematical equations as part of PDFs. I don't mind panning and zooming as long as the images and symbols are displayed correctly.

Also, how well are symbols and mathematical equations preserved during conversion of PDFs to other formats like MOBI or EPUB? From my experience after installing Calibre, it seems that conversion kills any mathematical stuff.

I'm sorry if this has been asked before. Could someone just provide me a link to the relevant thread/webpage?

Thanks!
