  • This is an account of lectures that were given at TASI 2005, the Shanghai Summer School in M-theory 2005 and the Perimeter Institute. I review 1) the derivation of the potential for chiral scalar fields in ${\cal N}$=1 supergravity 2) the relation between F and D terms for chiral scalars, Weyl anomalies and the generation of non-perturbative terms in the superpotential and 3) the derivation of effective potentials for light moduli in type IIB string theory.
