A simple, yet physically reasonable, model is presented which describes an arbitrary number of interacting particles in a quantum dot. Exact analytic expressions can be obtained for the energy spectrum as a function of particle number and magnetic field. The Pauli exclusion principle is shown to play a significant role in the process of Coulomb blockade in a quantum dot.
