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.
