The Minimal Supersymmetric Standard Model (MSSM) have got 5 physical Higgs scalars: 2 neutral CP-even, h (the lightest one) and H ; 1 neutral CP-odd, A; and 2 charged ones, H. The search strategies for these Higgs bosons have thus far been based mainly on their direct productions through Standard Model (SM)–like processes viz., gg → h,H,A, gg/qq̄ → h,H,A+ bb̄/tt̄ for the neutral Higgses and t → Hb, gg/qq̄ → Hbt̄ and gb → Ht for the charged Higgs (see Ref. 1,2 and references therein). Rates of most of these processes are strongly enhanced as tanβ grows. In this talk I briefly explore another potential source of MSSM Higgs bosons at the CERN Large Hadron Collider (LHC) in cascade decays of squarks and gluinos.
