ResumenIt has been pointed out that it is impossible to obtain a unitary implementation of the dynamics for the polarized Gowdy T³ cosmologies in an otherwise satisfactory, nonperturbative canonical quantization proposed for these spacetimes. By introducing suitable techniques to deal with deparametrized models in cosmology that possess an explicit time dependence (as it is the case for the toroidal Gowdy model), we present in this paper a detailed analysis about the roots of this failure of unitarity. We investigate the impediments to a unitary implementation of the evolution by considering modifications to the dynamics. These modifications may be regarded as perturbations. We show in a precise manner why and where unitary implementability fails in our system, and prove that the obstructions are extremely sensitive to modifications in the Hamiltonian that dictates the time evolution of the symmetry-reduced model. We are able to characterize to a certain extent how far the model is from unitarity. Moreover, we demonstrate that the dynamics can actually be approximated as much as one wants by means of unitary transformations.
