Trojan planets in HD 108874?

Abstract (from CDS):

It turned out recently that, in addition to a large planet with a semimajor axis a ∼1AU and a low eccentricity (e∼0.07), the extrasolar planetary system HD 108874 harbors another massive planet with 2.43AU<a<2.93AU. The inner planet is orbiting the G5 host star in the habitable zone (=HZ); so that we could established stable regions for Earth-like Trojan planets. We integrated some 105 orbits of fictitious Trojans around the Lagrangian points for up to 107 years and checked the stability of the orbital elements and their chaoticity with the aid of the Fast Lyapunov Indicator. It turns out that this multiplanetary system is the first one where - with the uncertainties in eccentricity and semimajor axes of the outer planet - the existence of Trojan terrestrial planets in stable orbits in the HZ is possible for some combinations of the orbital parameters.
