consult one of the standard books on special functions like
Abramowitz/Stegun. You will find that one of the possible
definitions of the Erfi-Function is
or Erf[I*z]/I -- so here is the answer:
Erfi is a function that is defined by a infinite series (like Exp, Sin,..)
and/or just by the integral above.
Hope that helps
