Abstract: Do there exist topologies $ \mathcal{U}$ and $ \mathcal{V}$ for the set $ R$ of real numbers such that a function $ f$ from $ R$ to $ R$ is smooth in some specified sense (e.g., differentiable, $ {C^n}$, or $ {C^\infty }$) with respect to the usual structure of the real line if and only if $ f$ is continuous from $ \mathcal{U}$ to $ \mathcal{V}$? We show that the answer is no.
