Title: Reply to 'Comment on 'Quantization of Friedmann-Robertson-Walker spacetimes in the presence of a negative cosmological constant and radiation''

Abstract

The previous Comment contains a valid criticism of the numerical precision of the results reported in a recent paper of ours, as well as fresh ideas on how to characterize a quantum cosmological singularity. However, we argue that, contrary to what is suggested in the Comment, the quantum cosmological models we studied show hardly any sign of singular behavior.
