Along different curves and at different points of the (x, y)-plane the Tutte polynomial evaluates a wide range of quantities. Some of these, such as the number of spanning trees of a graph and the partition function of the planar Ising model, can be computed in polynomial time, others are # P-hard. Here we give a complete characterisation of which points and curves are easy/hard in the bipartite case.
