Abstract: We investigate the functional distribution of $ L$-functions $ L(s, \chi_d)$ with real primitive characters $ \chi_d$ on the region $ 1/2 < \operatorname{Re} s <1$ as $ d$ varies over fundamental discriminants. Actually we establish the so-called universality theorem for $ L(s, \chi_d)$ in the $ d$-aspect. From this theorem we can, of course, deduce some results concerning the value distribution and the non-vanishing. As another corollary, it follows that for any fixed $ a, b$ with $ 1/2< a< b<1$ and positive integers $ r', m$, there exist infinitely many $ d$ such that for every $ r=1, 2, \cdots, r'$ the $ r$-th derivative $ L^{(r)} (s, \chi_d)$ has at least $ m$ zeros on the interval $ [a, b]$ in the real axis. We also study the value distribution of $ L(s, \chi_d)$ for fixed $ s$ with $ \operatorname{Re} s =1$ and variable $ d$, and obtain the denseness result concerning class numbers of quadratic fields.
