Abstract

We study the measure on the set of initial conditions in remote past for Loop Quantum Cosmology with massive scalar field motivated by various choices of the measure present in the literature. The main finding of the paper is existence of an attractor at contracting phase of the universe, which, in addition to the well known attractor at expanding phase, predicts a very specific duration of inflationary stage with the number of e-foldings about 140.
