Actually, thinking some more, I'm not certain that this "smooth function with maximum/minimum at every value" isn't possible to achieve within a finite range of t (which could then potentially be replicated periodically). But that would be a highly exotic function  pathological even, one might say  and probably nothing like what you want.
