It depends on what do you consider as a "mapping". The symbolic expression defined by

```
sage: var('t')
t
sage: x = vector([1,1])*exp(-t)
```

represents a (symbolic) function, which you can evaluate:

```
sage: x(t=13)
(e^(-13), e^(-13))
```

or derivate:

```
sage: x.derivative(t)
(-e^(-t), -e^(-t))
```

and so on.

If you want to define a python function, then you have to write something like:

```
sage: x = lambda t: (e^(-t), e^(-t))
sage: x(13)
(e^(-13), e^(-13))
```
