Graph-based collaborative filtering is capable of capturing the essential and abundant collaborative signals from the high-order interactions, and thus received increasingly research interests. Conventionally, the embeddings of users and items are defined in the Euclidean spaces, along with the propagation on the interaction graphs. Meanwhile, recent works point out that the high-order interactions naturally form up the tree-likeness structures, which the hyperbolic models thrive on. However,

In this paper, we propose to model the user-item interactions in a hybrid geometric space, in which the merits of Euclidean and hyperbolic spaces are simultaneously enjoyed to learn expressive representations. Experimental results on public datasets validate the effectiveness of our proposal.
