test positive



I want to test whether a function is always positive for a given set of
parameter values.

For example, consider the trivial case:

f=x*y

Is there a way to test whether x*y is positive given that x is greater
than 0 and y is less than 0 or both x and y are greater than 0, etc.,
or better yet to solve for the specific conditions that will yield
xy>0.

Thanks,
Manuel
