Title: A search for the Higgs boson in the zh channel with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron collider

This analysis describes a search for a standard model Higgs boson produced in association with a Z boson through the decay mode ZH → e+e-b$$\bar{b}$$ in p$$\bar{p}$$ collisions at √s = 1.96 TeV at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. The data sample used in this analysis corresponds to 452 pb-1 of integrated luminosity accumulated with the D0 detector. Agreement between data and standard model predictions is observed. A 95% confidence level upper exclusion limit for the σ(p$$\bar{p}$$ → ZH) x BR(H → b$$\bar{b}$$) channel is set between 3.2-8.2 pb for Higgs masses of 105 to 145 GeV.
