[Maxima] Using assume() with simplification functions.

Thanks for the response.
I am wondering in which cases the general simplifier does use assume()
Any assistance with the following would be appreciated:
(1) Which built-in Maxima simplification functions or other functions
definitely take into account assume() information ?
(2) Is it possible to somehow set a variable or flag such that the general
simplifier does take into account assume() information ?
Thanks very much.
