This article gives a good description of what Plücker Coordinates are and what they are good for. I short the coordinates are a way to describe orientation of lines, which can be used to for example check for ray-polygon intersection. Since plücker coordinates are 6D though, it might not be so effective as the equations may lead you to believe.
