For conversion of a Mathematica notebook to a LaTeX source file, you must first answer the question: what is the LaTeX equivalent of a Mathematica notebook cell? In situations such as you suggest, a more viable alternative of course might be to write the paper in LaTeX, to do calculations and construct graphics, etc., in Mathematica, then export. Probably this is what you're doing. While Mathematica users might wish for a world where the notebook were the medium of information exchange, let's face it: today in mathematics and allied fields, the medium is the LaTeX document (or perhaps the pdf document created from it).
