We provide a new parton theory for hole doped cuprates. We will describe both a pseudogap metal with small Fermi surfaces and the conventional Fermi liquid with large Fermi surfaces within mean field level of the same framework.  For the pseudogap metal,  “Fermi arc” observed in ARPES can be naturally reproduced.  We also provide a theory for a critical point across which the carrier density jumps from x to 1+x.   We will also discuss the generalization of the theory to Kondo breaking down transition in heavy fermion systems and  generic SU(N) Hubbard model.
