    You need something that supports ePub v3.0 for formula support. I don't personally know of any PDF to ePub 3 converters, but I have to believe they exist

    If you read the Calibre docs pdf to ePub conversion is poor to useless. The recommended way is to convert the pdf to web page filtered in M$ Word and then convert that html filtered file to ePub. That has always worked well for me but admittedly without mathematical formulas.

    You are still not going to get the formulas. Those are a fairly new addition to the ePub standard.
