The question is, how does Scribus support the typesetting of
mathematical formula. The render icon (looks like a gear wheel)
will allow you to create a frame that can be used to access

If you have lots of formulae you might consider typesettng your
document in TeX instead. Your choices are pdftlatex (most
popular), pdftex (simplest) Context (my choice for nonfiction)
and luatex or lualatex (with Context allows widest range of

You can download the texlive distribution from http:/www.tug.org.

There is of course a significant learning curve with any form
of TeX. But for books with formulae, Table of Contents, index,
footnotes, bibliography etc. TEX has decades of development 
behind it. I use TeX primarily for book interiors, but for my
current book I am going to use Scribus, to see how good it is
for complex interiors.
