What would be the special character for this mathematical notation?

enter image description here

And how do I enter the $H$ and $0$? What are the Special Characters?

I searched information about this bar in another site to get the specific name of this character: Link

    $\begingroup$ If all you are trying to do is format the expression then (V == HoldForm[A/H^2] Subsuperscript[Abs[HoldForm[h^3/3]], 0, H]) // TraditionalForm $\endgroup$

\[DoubleVerticalBar] behaves like a binary operator (often used to indicate parallel lines in geometry). You probably want

Subsuperscript[\[LeftDoubleBracketingBar] h/3 \[RightDoubleBracketingBar], 0, H] // 

which gives

Bob Hanlon's comment is closer to what I was expecting, but it may be that m_goldberg's notation may be more correct. In doubt, I'll post this:

(V == HoldForm[A/H^2] Subsuperscript[Abs[HoldForm[h^3/3]], 0, H])
