Abstract. The aim of this paper is to present two fundamental applications of the, so called, Prodinger's algebraic identities. On the one hand we will receive the wide class of trigonometric identities, including identities for Chebyshev polynomials of the first and second kinds. On the second hand we will present the generalizations for Fibonacci and Lucas polynomials of some identities, proved by Prodinger for Fibonacci and Lucas numbers.
