In [8]: a=np.array([0, 0, 0, 0, 2, 3, 4, 0, 0, 0, 4, 3, 2, 0])

In [9]: center = np.convolve(a,a).argmax()*.5

In [10]: center
Out[10]: 8.0

In [11]: a[center - 4: center + 5]
Out[11]: array([2, 3, 4, 0, 0, 0, 4, 3, 2])

Essentially this computes the component of the original along the reversed
version for different shifts looking for the best match. The center can be
between two indices which is why it is computed as a float
