Let R\mathscr{R} denote the ring of real polynomials on Rn\mathbb{R}^{n}. Fix m0m\geq 0, and let A1,,AMRA_{1},\ldots,A_{M}\in\mathscr{R}. The CmC^{m}-closure of (A1,,AM)(A_{1},\ldots,A_{M}), denoted here by [A1,,AM;Cm][A_{1},\ldots,A_{M};C^{m}], is the ideal of all fRf\in \mathscr{R} expressible in the form f=F1A1++FMAMf=F_{1}A_{1}+\cdots +F_{M}A_{M} with each FiCm(Rn)F_{i}\in C^{m}(\mathbb{R}^{n}). In this paper we exhibit an algorithm for computing generators for [A1,,AM;Cm][A_{1},\ldots,A_{M};C^{m}].
