Title: Search for MSSM Higgs Boson Production in Proton Anti-Proton Collisions, with a Higgs Decaying into Taus

We present a search for the production of neutral Higgs bosons in association with bottom quarks in p$$\bar{p}$$ 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 fb-1, were collected with the D0 detector at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. In the absence of a signal a 95% C.L. limit is set on the production cross section times branching ratio, and the results are also interpreted in the MSSM.
