Defining range of variables for the whole notebook

Hi all, At the start of a notebook, is there a way to define that a parameter belongs to a specific range such as [0,1]? I need Mathematica to know about the sign of the values under radicals and simplify them without being forced to repeat the Assuming function for the whole notebook over and over.

You could use $Assumptions

$Assumptions = {a > 0, b > 0};

Sqrt[a^2*b^2] // Simplify
(* a b *)

Power[a^3*b^3, 1/3] // Simplify
(* a b *)
