```Hi,

but the right hand side is not evaluated and the symbolic
expression MatrixExp[A t].{b1,0,0} is a singel expression and
not a list of three expressions.

If you have a fixed value for t you can comput the vector on the
right hand side.

You definition should be

x[i_Integer][t_?NumericQ]:=Part[MatrixExp[A t].{b1, 0, 0},i]

Jens
