Let formula18 and formula20 be simple vertex operator algebras satisfying certain natural uniqueness-of-vacuum, complete reducibility and cofiniteness conditions and let F be a conformal full field algebra over formula24. We prove that the formula26-formula28-traces (natural traces involving formula30 and formula32) of geometrically modified genus-zero correlation functions for F are convergent in suitable regions and can be extended to doubly periodic functions with periods 1 and formula38. We obtain necessary and sufficient conditions for these functions to be modular invariant. In the case that formula40 and F is one of those constructed by the authors in (Y.-Z. Huang and L. Kong, Full field algebras, to appear; math.QA/0511328), we prove that all these functions are modular invariant.
