@ Expands to the positional parameters, starting from
When the expansion occurs within double quotes, each parameter expands
to a separate word. That is, "$@" is equivalent to "$1" "$2" ... If
the double-quoted expansion occurs within a word, the expansion of the
first parameter is joined with the beginning part of the original
word, and the expansion of the last parameter is joined with the last
part of the original word. When there are no positional parameters,
"$@" and $@ expand to nothing (i.e., they are removed).

I don't quite see the difference with $* :-?

$* is a single string/argument, $@ is an array.
