Summary: This paper is an introduction to the theory of algebras with polynomial identities. It stresses on matrix algebras and polynomial identities for them. The notion of Bergman polynomials is introduced. Such types of polynomials are investigated being identities for algebras with symplectic involution. In the Lie case more information is given for Bergman polynomials as Lie identities for the considered algebras.
