    158The Georgi-Machacek (GM) model was proposed in 1985 [1] as a plausible scenario for EWSB with interesting collider signatures. In this model, the scalar sector of the Standard Model (SM) is extended by the addition of one complex and one real SU(2) triplet. The hypercharge assignments of the triplets allows for a custodial SU(2) symmetry to be imposed upon the scalar potential, so that rho=1 is preserved at tree level. This is desirable for SM extensions in light of constraints from electroweak precision data. The model has the following salient features that make it phenomenologically interesting:
