Jerry,

It seems that in some cases Assuming beforehand is better than Simplifying
afterwards.

Assuming[a > 0, Limit[Exp[-a t], t -> Infinity]]
0

Assuming[a < 0, Limit[Exp[-a t], t -> Infinity]]
Infinity

Why do these give no output?

Simplify[Limit[Exp[-a t],t->Infinity],a>0]

and  same for

Simplify[Limit[Exp[a t],t->Infinity],a<0]

thanks...
