Jupiter analogues in super-Earth systems

Bryan et al. "An Excess of Jupiter Analogs in Super-Earth Systems"
https://arxiv.org/abs/1806.08799

Various new outer companion candidates, not clear if they are planetary or (sub)stellar. To me it looks like the GJ 667 C candidate might actually be due to the GJ 667 AB binary, but this isn't discussed in the text. Also noted that they only detect 3, 3 and 4 of the previously-known planet candidates in GJ 667 C, GJ 876 and HD 40307 respectively.

Upshot is that it looks like Jupiters do not suppress inner super-Earths and that the two populations of planets may be correlated.
