The Mathematician's Air Display (Mysterious Air Display) is the third album by Pekka Pohjola, released in 1977 by Virgin Records. Esoteric Recordings is reissuing the album on 25 January 2010.[1]

The album is co-produced by Mike Oldfield and features him as guitarist (along with Georg Wadenius). All the material is composed by Pohjola.

The album is known by many names in various countries - in Finland Keesojen lehto, in Sweden Skuggornas tjuvstart, in the Netherlands The Consequences of Indecisions (credited to Mike Oldfield) and in the United States and Italy Untitled (credited to Mike & Sally Oldfield, Pekka Pohjola). The original Finnish title translates as "The grove of Keesos". Keesos are leprechaun-like creatures depicted on the cover art of the original issue.[clarification needed]

Original track titles are given by Hector.[2]
