I'm studying properties of the manifold of symmetric positive-definite (SPD) matrices and I've learnt about the following connection to the hyperbolic space [1, Section 2.2], $$\mathcal{P}(n) = \mathcal{SP}(n) \times \mathbb{R}^+,\qquad \mathcal{SP}(n) \cong \mathbb{H}^p,$$ where $\mathcal{P}(n)$ is the space of SPD matrices, $\mathcal{SP}(n) = \{ A \in \mathcal{P}(n) : \lvert A \rvert = 1 \}$, and $p = n (n + 1) / 2 - 1$. In words,

$\mathcal{P}(n)$ is a foliated manifold whose codimension-one leaves are isomorphic to the hyperbolic space $\mathbb{H}^p$.

I wanted to see a proof of this isomorphism (and what it means more precisely) and I found [2] and its follow up [3] which focus on $2 \times 2$ SPD matrices. They mention certain connections between the standard metrics in these spaces, e.g. [3, p4], \begin{align}\tag{1}\label{eq:1} d_{\mathcal{P}}(X_1,X_2) = \sqrt{\frac{1}{2} \big(\log \lvert X_1 \rvert - \log \lvert X_2 \rvert \big)^2 + d_{\mathbb{D}}^2(y_1,y_2)}, \end{align} where $d_{\mathcal{P}}$ is the canonical metric on $\mathcal{P}(n)$ (see [2, eq. (6)]), $d_{\mathbb{D}}(y_1,y_2)$ is the distance in the Poincaré disk between two points that "correspond" to the SPD matrices $X_1, X_2$ (more precisely, their scaled versions $\tilde{X}_1,\tilde{X}_2 \in \mathcal{SP}(n)$; see [2, p4-6]).

That being said, I couldn't find a proof for the general case of $n \times n$ SPD matrices. Is anyone aware of other relevant resources? Or is it really obvious? Does a generalized form of \eqref{eq:1} still hold?

Thank you.
