An "Assume" type command

One of the nice things about Maple V rev 4 is it's assume command.

Is there such a thing on Mathematica? Basically I am trying to get
a solution to a Fourier transform that I have to calculate by residues
by hand, and I would like to see a similar result on the computer. 
By hand, I need to first assume w (the frequency variable) is less than zero,
solve for that, then assume w greater than zero and solve for that. Mathematica
gives a real tidy solution to the problem, but doesn't really let me know if
what I did was right. Does anyone know how to do this?
