Do Particles Reproduce?

Particles are not living organisms and do not grow or reproduce.

However, some particles are radioactive and decay into other particles. The particle decay refers to the transformation of a fundamental particle into other fundamental particles. For example, during the Michel decay, the muon decays to an electron, an electron antineutrino, and a muon neutrino.

But again, it is not a reproduction!
