Calibre won't correctly convert books.

I was wondering if anyone could help me with a problem I'm having. I'm currently going through some math books that I want to read on my sony prs 600. Unfortunately it is in pdf format and the margins are quite excessive on it. I would like to remove the margins. But when I try to in Calibre, it becomes unreadable.

I would be willing to use a different format, but .pdf is the only electronic format freely available and the book has a lot of latex in it. And .pdfs seem to be the only type of document that can display latex text well.

I have attached the unconverted file.
Thanks

Hi,
well yeah i'm having the same problem with margins in pdf. How can i remove them for example using calibre, and still have my output file resemble input pdf as much as possible (what might be the best format to convert pdf to view it on sony reader prs 600).

thnx for the help!
