Abstract: We perform a search for the rare decay Bs->mumu using data collected by the D0 experiment at the Fermilab Tevatron Collider. This result is based on the full D0 Run II dataset corresponding to 10.4 fb^(-1) of ppbar collisions at sqrt(s) = 1.96 TeV. We use a multivariate analysis to increase the sensitivity of the search. In the absence of an observed number of events above the expected background, we set an upper limit on the decay branching fraction of BR(Bs->mumu) < 15x10^(-9) at the 95% C.L.
