In contrast to claims in the web (i.e. M. Kofler: Sackgasse LaTeX?) it is possible to create ebooks from LaTeX sources easily even with sophisticated formulas and custom stylesheets. Using calibre and tex4ht I was able to provide an ePub of my PhD thesis: Atomistische Simulation von Nanoindentation. The resulting output looks quite impressive (minor defects when it comes to image boundaries or subscripts in text blocks). For comparison the original PDF.
