### $C^\infty$ approximations of $f(r) = |r|^{m-1}r$ [migrated]

Consider $f(r) = |r|^{m-1}r$ where $m \geq 1$.
Is it possible to find $C^\infty$ functions $f_n$, such that
$f_n \to f$ uniformly on compact subsets of $\mathbb{R}$,
$f_n' \to f'$ uniformly on ...

### Regularization of Zygmund functions

Dear community.
I would like to derive a "good" estimate on $\frac{d}{dt}f_\epsilon(t)$, where $f_\epsilon$ is a regularization of a Zygmund-continuous function $f$, i.e.
...
