by Peter Svoisky We present a search for the production of neutral Higgs bosons in association with bottom quarks in pp collisions at √ s = 1.96 TeV. The cross section for this process is enhanced in many extensions of the Standard Model (SM), such as in its Minimal Supersymmetric extension (MSSM) at large tan β. The data, corresponding to a recorded integrated luminosity of 1 f b −1 , were collected with the DØ detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. In the absense of a signal a 95% C.L.
