```If a definition has variables or parameters on the right hand side then
those variables and parameters should also appear as patterns on the left
hand side. So write your definition as follows:

matrix[alfa_] := {{Cos[alfa], -Sin[alfa], 0}, {Sin[alfa], Cos[alfa],  0},
{0, 0, 1}}

matrix[45 =B0]
{{1/Sqrt[2], -(1/Sqrt[2]), 0}, {1/Sqrt[2], 1/Sqrt[2], 0}, {0, 0, 1}}
