Does anyone know what this means?

Color Formula

Just the incorrect translation for what is called "color contribution index" (CCI)

Thanks. I have a better understanding now, but I still have no reference.

I see two splits above: 10-0-1.5 and 11-0-0

How would the colors be different between 10-0-1.5 and 11-0-0?

The article calls 11-0-0 a rational fall and 11-0-1.5 almost perfect.

The post also says (translated): "However, the "golden mean" is a lot of lens optics of the old school without MC enlightenment."

Does that mean the single coated optics have better color? What is the golden mean?

No, single coated lenses don't have better colour.

Golden mean: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Golden_mean_(philosophy)

"the golden mean or golden middle way is the desirable middle between two extremes, one of excess and the other of deficiency."
