I found gnome-character-map very useful application, when I need to construct simple math formula, it has greek letters, therefore I wanted to go further, does gnome-character-map have any other math symbols, "great or equal","doesn't equal" for example?

Yes it does, you can simply reverse search the symbol, let's say ≥ (more or equal), find it and other symbols.

In Character Map menu, View > By Unicode Block.

Then select "Mathematical Operators" in the list at the left.
