We develop a stochastic calculus that makes it easy to capture a variety of predictable transformations of semimartingales such as changes of variables, stochastic integrals, and their compositions. The framework offers a unified treatment of real-valued and complex-valued semimartingales. The proposed calculus is a blueprint for the derivation of new relationships among stochastic processes with specific examples provided in the paper.
