Abstract
We show how duality invariance of the supergravity action restricts the Kähler potential and the superpotential and connects them to the theory of modular forms. This has relevance in string-induced supergravity for those scalar fields which are moduli of the underlying string compactification. We also discuss the restrictions imposed on globally supersymmetric theories.
