Let I⊂ ℝ be open, let k∈ N0 and T : Ck(I) →Ck(I) be bijective, pointwise continuous and submultiplicative, i.e., (Formula presented) Suppose also that T (-1) < 0 and that T and T-1 are positivity preserving. We show that there is a homeomorphism u : I → I and that there are continuous functions p,A ∈ C(I) with p > 0, A ≥ 1 such that (Formula presented). For k ∈ N, we have A = p = 1, and u is a Ck-diffeomorphismus so that Tf(u(x)) = f(x), i.e., T is multiplicative for k ∈ N. This rigidity property also holds for supermultiplicative operators.
