The lines connecting the vertices and corresponding circle-circle intersections in Malfatti's Tangent Triangle Problem coincide in a point called the first Ajima-Malfatti point (Kimberling and MacDonald 1990, Kimberling 1994). Similarly, letting , , and be the excenters of , then the lines , , and are coincident in another point called the second Ajima-Malfatti point. The points are sometimes simply called the Malfatti Points (Kimberling 1994).
