As a continuation to our previous work (Nakano and Sadahiro, 2014), we consider a generalization of carries process. Our results are: (i) right eigenvectors of the transition probability matrix, (ii) correlation of carries between different steps, and (iii) generalized riffle shuffle whose corresponding descent process has the same distribution as that of the generalized carries process.
