Category ids are stored for product in a comma separated way. So, to filter product collection by more than one category, you have to use:
addAttributeToFilter(‘category_ids’,array(‘finset’=>$categoryIds));

$categoryIds can be a single category id or comma separated category ids.

The following code filters product collection by two category ids (36 and 37).

$_productCollection = Mage::getResourceModel('reports/product_collection')
->addAttributeToSelect('*')
->addAttributeToFilter('category_ids',array('finset'=>'36,37'));

finset does so… when we use finset, the mysql function find_in_set is used in the sql query by Magento.

mysql function find_in_set:

FIND_IN_SET() looks for the first occurrence of a string within another string containing comma-separated values.

SELECT FIND_IN_SET(‘b’,’a,b,c,d’); // result = 2

Cheers!
