actually the manual suggests using ntt=3, which is Langevin dynamics.
Langevin has options, as does Andersen, and the appropriate
choices really depend on what problem you are trying to solve
and what data you want to get out of the simulation.
I would suggest reading articles that were successful in the
type of research that you want to do and follow their example.
