Maximal lattice free bodies are maximal polytopes without interior integral points. Scarf initiated the study of maximal lattice free bodies relative to the facet normals in a fixed matrix. In this paper we give an efficient algorithm for computing the maximal lattice free bodies of an integral matrix A. An important ingredient is a test set for a certain integer program associated with A. This test set may be computed using algebraic methods. As an application we generalize the Scarf-Shallcross algorithm for the three-dimensional Frobenius problem to arbitrary dimension. In this context our method is inspired by the novel algorithm by Einstein, Lichtblau, Strzebonski and Wagon and the Groebner basis approach by Roune.
