A finite group F H is said to be Frobenius-like if it has a nontrivial nilpotent normal subgroup F with a nontrivial complement H such that F H/[F, F] is a Frobenius group with Frobenius kernel F/[F, F]. Such subgroups and sections are abundant in any nonnilpotent finite group. We discuss several recent results about the properties of a finite group G admitting a Frobenius-like group of automorphisms F H aiming at restrictions on G in terms of CG(H) and focusing mainly on bounds for the Fitting height and related parameters. Earlier such results were obtained for Frobenius groups of automorphisms; new theorems for Frobenius-like groups are based on new representation-theoretic results. Apart from a brief survey, the paper contains the new theorem on almost nilpotency of a finite group admitting a Frobenius-like group of automorphisms with fixed-point-free almost extraspecial kernel.
