I would like to assume that a>t[b_] for any b, such that e.g. Simplify[a>t[c]]==True. How could this be done? Simply including

$Assumptions = a > t[_] 

does not work.

I only need to consider functions of one argument, e.g. t[c] rather than t[c,d].

$Assumptions = {Element[t[_], Reals], a > t[_]};

Simplify[a > t[c]] 

True
