An important quantity characterizing the shadowability of computer-generated trajectories in nonhyperbolic chaotic system is the shadowing time, which measures for how long a numerical trajectory remains valid. This time depends sensitively on an initial condition. Here, we show that for nonhyperbolic systems with unstable-dimension variability, the probability distribution of the shadowing time contains two distinct scaling behaviors: an algebraic scaling for short times and an exponential scaling for long times. The exponential behavior depends on the system details but the small-time algebraic behavior appears to be universal.
