Nazarov M., Yangian of the queer Lie superalgebra, Comm.
Yangian of the Strange Lie Superalgebra of $\boldsymbol{Q_{n-1}}$ Type, Drinfel'd Approach
In addition to the expected examples of the modular versions of Lie superalgebras of vector f ields, and the queer analog of the gl series, there are – for p = 2 – numerous (and hitherto unexpected) queerif ications, see .
Classification of Finite Dimensional Modular Lie Superalgebras with Indecomposable Cartan Matrix
In the text-book [Ls] it is demonstrated that there are two superizations of gl(n): a naive one, gl(n|m), and the “queer” one, q(n) which preserves an “odd” complex structure.

The queer nature of q(n) is partly due to the nonabelian structure of its Cartan subalgebra h which has a nontrivial odd part h¯1 .
Bounded highest weight modules of q(n)
Among the most interesting cases not included in the latter classification is the case of q(n) (or, equivalently, of the simple queer Lie superalgebra psq(n)).
