A non-Abelian version of the Hirota–Miwa equation is considered. In an earlier paper of Nimmo (2006 J. Phys. A: Math. Gen. 39 5053–65) it was shown how solutions expressed as quasideterminants could be constructed for this system by means of Darboux transformations. In this paper, we discuss these solutions from a different perspective and show that the solutions are quasi-Plücker coordinates and that the non-Abelian Hirota–Miwa equation may be written as a quasi-Plücker relation. The special case of the matrix Hirota–Miwa equation is also considered using a more traditional, bilinear approach and the techniques are compared.
